I’m not sure what it is about the salted caramel, but it just seems that whatever I add it to – even if I’ve raved about that recipe for years – just gets exponentially better. Take my family’s zucchini bread recipe. It is one that I’ve eaten and loved since I was a little girl. It’s one that has been in my family for years before I was even a thought in my parents’ minds. In other words, it’s an old, old, old, old recipe! Ha!

The other day when I was making it, I decided to add a fun new flavor element to it by adding in some salted caramel I’d made. Oh boy! Talk about being such a difference that I don’t want to make it without it again anytime soon!

Then, once the bread came out of the oven, I took the liberty of pouring some over the top. I know! While it was probably totally unnecessary, it sure was delicious! It soaked into the warm bread almost like you’d expect from a cake you’ve poked holes into, but not nearly as much. When I sat down with a slice and my morning coffee, I immediately thought how much I wish you all were able to have a bite. So, so delicious!

  1. Rachel says:

    Should I measure out the coconut oil in solid or liquid form?

    1. Robyn Stone says:

      I measure it in solid form.

  2. Sandy Ericson says:

    Do you use a boughten salted caramel sauce? I have never seen any in the stores around here, in northern Wi. Only caramel ice cream topping. Can you use it and just sprinkle salt on top lightly?

  3. Sally Smith says:

    Is coconut oil available in most grocery stores? If so, is it in a solid form like Crisco shortening?

    1. Robyn Stone says:

      Hi Sally,
      Yes, coconut oil is now widely available in grocery stores and is solid at room temperature.
