Super Simple Salted Caramel Bread

Hi everyone! Hope you’ve all had a great weekend so far, doing something that you enjoy – maybe some of you have even been baking? No? Just me? Nah, I don’t believe that for a minute. I know that some of you reading this enjoy baking as much as I do (and more) so I’d love to hear what you’ve recently baked – has it been something seasonal or maybe something adventurous? I myself opted for something super simple and you may even call it cheating but the result was just SO amazing that I can’t wait to share it with you.

I needed to return something to TK Maxx and I was actually having one of my better days so I even managed to do some browsing with my husband. So I browsed straight to their homeware section where I found the little gem that this post is about.

Salted Caramel Flavoured Quick Bread Mix, Rabbit Creek Farms.

It actually lists everything that you need on the bread mix pack, but I’ll pop it here anyway.

  • 1 pack of Bread Mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup of milk
  • 1/4 cup of melted butter (I actually used coconut oil but it worked a treat so I’m happy with my choice)
  • Anything else you want to add to it (just when I was getting ready to pop it in the loaf tin I thought I’d add some white chocolate chunks to it. Great decision!)
  • Loaf tin
  • Mixing bowl + spatula/spoon

The actual steps could not be easier. It’s perfect for when you’re feeling that you just want to flop but also that you want to flop whilst munching on freshly baked bread/cake thing.

Step * – Preheat your oven to gas mark 4/180C/350F.

Step 1 – Add all the ingredients to the dry mix (which smelled AMAZING by the way). If you’re lucky it’ll look like a face. A bit unnerving really. It’s looking at me…

Step 2 – Mix it all together until the dry flour + salt + caramel mix has combined fully with the eggs + milk + butter/coconut oil and then add anything else that you’d like. I thought some white chocolate chunks would go well with it.

Step 3 – Pour the mix into greased loaf tin and pop it in the oven for 40-50 minutes or until it’s ready. I think it’s amazing how it goes from gloopy mess to this amazingly smelling deliciousness.

Step 4 – Tuck in! If you can wait that long, you might want to let it cool down a bit before cutting into it. We found 10 minute waiting time was torture enough.

Overall I’d give this mix 10/10. I’ve been experimenting with some other mixes recently and none of them have turned out as well as this did. I would not hesitate to make this again.

Also, even though it says ‘bread mix’ it looks more like a loaf cake to me. Or are they the same thing? Hmm, questions, questions…

      1. To be honest so am i with bread! But the River Cottage Bread handbook is fantastic. It starts with some really basic recipes and explains all the steps in detail. Towards the back of the book it has some slightly more complex recipes like baguettes. But i would recommend getting that.
