This Caramel Apple Amish Friendship Bread is a throwback to your childhood. Think summer-time fairs, Halloween, leaf-raking parties, candied apples. It’s the kind of recipe that tastes amazing straight out of the oven, generously drizzled with our caramel glaze, and tastes even better the next day.

I would love to try this recipe with the bundt pan for my family. https://www.friendshipbreadkitchen.com/caramel-apple-afb/
Is this the first part of the starter batch, or is this after you add the day 6 add in’s?
Darien Gee says
You would bake on Day 10 with the remaining cup of the starter, Rebecca. If you are regularly maintaining a starter (more than 10 days), you can bake at any time but it’s always best on the day of the most bubbly activity, usually the day or day after a feeding. Does this help?
Does the Carmel Glaze go in the bread recipe? The directions say to mix all ingredients as listed. The glaze is listed as the last ingredient.

I haven’t tried anything like this, but it does sound good and I know my mom would love this too as well as myself
Christina Almond says
This looks amazing! I would make this for my Mom for Mother’s Day–she would enjoy it!
Kathy Anneken says
I would LOVE to try this recipe for crisp Fall Season; however I would like to use chopped Granny Smith apples instead of the dry apples. The caramel glaze sounds amazing and together should be perfect with a cup of coffee !

oh we made it again… this time i used the flan pudding mix and also added the caramel from that box in the mix and i used a can from LUCK’s fried apples instead of the dried ones. DELICIOUS =)

Jan Cramer says
Has anyone used fresh apples instead of dried ones? Have lots of farm apples right now.
Stacy J Werneke says
I used fresh apples in mine and it was perfectly fine. I changed nothing else in the recipe. Just diced them up and added at the end.
Thank you so much for your reply!!
Jan Cramer says
Sounds wonderful. I actually have a starter out to make those caramel brownies (to die for). Will also make this caramel apply bread. Jan
Oh my ~ this looks and sounds so tasty! I cannot wait to try it! Thank you for this recipe and for the Amish Friendship Bread Starter recipe! 🙂
I have just started the starter for the friendship bread… Cant wait to bake my first bread…
Helen Doyle says
I am wondering if this would work with brown sugar instead of white sugar as we don’t have the different pudding mixes available in Australia.
Martha Nichols says
Where can I find caramel instant pudding? I can’t seem to locate it.
Martha Nichols says
Thank you Susan for getting back to me! I will definitely try it with the flan pudding mix.
Fastforward to the 2020 Coronavirus pandemic. We made this lovely caramel quick bread with 2 tsp of caramel extract (Watkins brand) that we ordered from Amazon to our quarantined home, We also cored and sliced apples and dehydrated them on cookie sheets in our low temperature oven to get a leathery texture for this recipe. It turned out delicious and half the recipe also made yummy muffins!
Those sound delicious, KelliSue! Thanks for sharing! If you have any pictures, we’d love to see them, too. You can post them on our group page on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/amishfriendshipbread/
