Caramel Glazed Apple Bread

Nothing smells better than apple bread baking in your oven.  My home smelled so lovely for quite awhile!  It tasted just as good too.  Top it with the caramel glaze, and it was a match made in heaven.  Seriously!

And it's beautiful!  I was excited to give the other loaf away, and I hope they were happy with it.

Apple Bread
1 1/2 cups shredded, peeled green baking apples (2 large)
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
4 eggs, lightly beaten
3 cups All purpose flour
1/2 cup chopped pecans
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Caramel Glaze
2 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon milk
1/2 cup powdered sugar

Heat oven to 350°F. Grease bottoms only of 2 (8×4-inch) loaf pans with cooking spray or shortening.

In large bowl, stir together apples, brown sugar, buttermilk, oil and eggs. Stir in remaining bread ingredients just until dry ingredients are moistened. Pour into pans.

Bake 45 to 55 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes on cooling rack. Loosen sides of loaves from pans, remove from pans.  Cool completely on wire racks, about 1 hour.

In 1-quart saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Stir in 1/4 cup brown sugar. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly; reduce heat to low. Boil and stir 2 minutes. Stir in milk. Heat to boiling; remove from heat. Cool to lukewarm, about 30 minutes.

Gradually stir powdered sugar into glaze mixture. Place saucepan of glaze in bowl of cold water. Beat with spoon until smooth and thin enough to drizzle. If glaze becomes too stiff, stir in additional milk, 1/2 teaspoon at a time, or heat over low heat, stirring constantly. Drizzle glaze over loaves.
