Let me tell you when this loaf is baking in the oven, the aromas that fill your kitchen are simply mouth-watering. My daughter came wandering into the kitchen as this was baking asking what smelled so good. She could not wait for it to cool before having a slice. Caramel Pecan sweet bread recipe

I admit I could barely wait for this pecan and caramel bread to cool before I had a slice too. It's delicious to have while enjoying your cup of coffee or tea. My only regret was that I did not double the recipe the first time. I did not make that mistake the next time I baked it ha ha

Don't forget to PIN this recipe for later!caramel pecan loaf

The coffee gives it another subtle flavor that complements the caramel and pecans and almost gives it bit more of a caramel bit in my opinion, which I love this flavor. caramel pecan coffee cake

  1. Everyone loved this sweet bread. Added a bit of cinnamon to the dry ingredients and vanilla to the wet ingredients. Baked it just as the directions indicated. It came out perfect!!

  2. I thought I would make this before actually posting a review (what a novel idea) - anyway, here is what happened. I followed the recipe directly and did not make any changes. The bread was not done after 25 minutes, nor after the additional 15 minutes. I had to turn the oven up to 400 and bake it yet another 20 minutes before it was done - at that point, the top was beginning to brown a little too much. The caramel sauce had flowed over the sides of my bread and had congealed in bottom of the pan, making the bread stick. I spooned out what remained in the pan and spread it on top of the bread with the pecans. The flavor of the bread itself was okay, but a little flat one-dimensional - some cinnamon or nutmeg might have helped - maybe. Its only saving grace was the caramel topping, which probably should be added halfway through baking instead of the very beginning. Overall, this was a big disappointment and so not worth the time or ingredients.

    • Hi Stephanie,

      I'm so sorry to hear this didn't work for you. Unfortunately, a variety of variables can affect a recipe including how different ovens heat, some are hotter than others, some hotter on one side, age of ingredients like baking powder, even elevation as higher altitudes can affect a recipe, yes seriously. I've made this a few times and have not had any of your same issues. Again sorry to hear it didn't work for you.

  3. I am a huge fan of sweet breads because I do NOT, thankfully have a major sweet tooth.
    Just the right about of sugar when craving and generally much healthier too.
    Your caramel pecan bread looks awesome.
    I will pin later today.

  4. The caramel pecan sweet bread sounds delicious and easy to make. I may try to make it this weekend. We are already running out of pumpkin pie. Pecan bread sounds yummy!

  5. I think I am going to try and make the Caramel Pecan Sweet Bread Recipe for Christmas morning when we are opening presents. Our family loves pecans and this is such a nice comforting recipe.

  6. Ok, you had me at caramel. I think this will be delicious. Yes I will be making and enjoying this, every bite. Thanks so much!

  7. I have a lot of baking to do for the holidays and im looking for new recipes to make for the family this year. I love the bread and the cupcakes the kids love those to munch on. Earthquake German Chocolate Cake I will make for my mom she will love it.

  8. This sounds simply decadent! Can't wait to try it. I am a caramel obsessed individual so will most likely put on a few pounds gorging on this caramel pecan sweet bread! 🙂 Thank you....I think.

  9. I have never had bread with these flavors before, it sounds absolutely delicious! I am definitely going to make this for my family, thank you so much for sharing the recipe!
