Triple Chocolate Caramel Butterscotch Bread

by aimee @ shugarysweets on June 4, 2012

Triple Chocolate Quick Bread topped with Caramel, chocolate chips and Butterscotch chips
Whew. That’s one heck of a title. Today I am doing a little blog post re-do. See back last summer I had total recipe fail. If you were around back then you may remember This Trifle.
A trifle? Yep, that what most of my cake and bread fails turn into, if they taste good but don’t come out of the pan.
But I also attempted homemade caramel sauce that turned into caramel whipped cream. Which, don’t get me wrong, was divine.
But I’ve been thinking about this bread. Since last summer. I baked it up again. And, since I didn’t want a fail on my hands I used jarred caramel ice cream topping. Since that’s a little runnier than homemade would normally turn out I topped ith with milk chocolate chips and butterscotch chips. Stuck her in the refrigerator and O M G.
Success. It’s a beautiful sturdy chocolate bread with the most scrumptious topping. Don’t ya think?
Do you ever go back and re-do old recipes on your blog? Some of my friends did the same thing today. Go check them out at the bottom of this post!
Triple Chocolate Caramel Butterscotch Bread

Rating: 51

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 60 minutes

Yield: 1 loaf


  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup boiling water
  • 1 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (I used Hershey's dark chocolate)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup milk chocolate morsels
  • 1/2 cup caramel ice cream sauce
  • 1/4 cup butterscotch morsels
  • 1/4 cup semi sweet chocolate morsels


  1. In mixing bowl beat butter and sugar until creamy, about 3 minutes. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Beat in vanilla, sour cream and water. Slowly add flour, cocoa, and baking soda. Mix completely. Fold in milk chocolate morsels.
  2. Line the bottom of a loaf pan with parchment paper. Use baking spray to grease completely. Pour batter into pan and bake in a 350 degree oven for 60-65 minutes. Allow to cool in loaf pan about 10 minutes. Remove to wire rack and cool COMPLETELY.
  3. When cool, spoon caramel sauce on top of loaf. Press chocolate chips and butterscotch chips into the caramel, it helps keep it from dripping down the sides. Refrigerate bread. Slice when ready to serve! Enjoy.

Thanks for participating Aimee!!!


Becca @ Crumbs and Chaos June 4, 2012 at 12:49 pm

Anything that starts with the words – triple chocolate – would definitely be worth trying again (and again). Looks like total dessert heaven!


Ashley @ Kitchen Meets Girl June 4, 2012 at 1:10 pm

Holy yum! AND, since you called this a “bread,” it’s totally a breakfast food, right??


Dorothy @ Crazy for Crust June 4, 2012 at 1:31 pm

Holy cow, that’s amazing. I wish I could live with you to eat your fails, lol. :)


Jocelyn June 4, 2012 at 1:39 pm

I think making a trifle is a great way to fix a “fail”. But triple chocolate bread covered in caramel and butterscotch would be even better!!! Yummm! I want this bread like NOW! It’s going on my list to make when I get home;-)


Julie June 4, 2012 at 2:10 pm

OH.MY.WORD!! Can’t wait to make this. It’s pinned and on the list :)

That bread is CRAZY. Is it wrong I am so tempted to slather it with butter? No–cinnamon butter. And whipped cream. And maybe just a teensy drizzle of caramel sauce but only a teensy one! It looks awesome!


Lisa @ Flour Me With Love June 4, 2012 at 2:14 pm

This looks divine! I can’t wait to try it…thanks so much for sharing at Mix it up Monday :)


Danielle June 4, 2012 at 2:28 pm

Mandy June 4, 2012 at 2:46 pm

Sophie June 4, 2012 at 2:52 pm

your loaf looks amazing – but so did the trifle:)


Kristy June 6, 2012 at 1:30 am

Hi, Your bread looks absolutely amazing!!! but in your ingredients list, Did you mean in your 1/2 cup of caramel sauce? You have it as ice cream, just thought I’d let you know.


Maria June 6, 2012 at 3:43 am

Oh woooow….. this looks HEAVENLY!!!! Oh my goodness………..!!!!!


madge | the vegetarian casserole queen June 7, 2012 at 9:50 am

This sounds better than chocolate cake! And you are not alone in the need to redo recipes. In fact, I sometimes obsess over a fail until I get it right!


Carol, The Answer Is Chocolate June 7, 2012 at 2:58 pm

Oh my! Oh my my my! This looks incredible!


Winnie June 7, 2012 at 6:20 pm

Kathy Diebel September 2, 2012 at 6:58 pm

I think when I make this I’m subbing peanut butter chips for the butterscotch chips. Can’t wait to make this! Or, you could sub. white chocolate chips for the butterscotch chips!


Aimee September 2, 2012 at 6:59 pm

As long as the top is covered in chips, anything goes!!!

Would this work for mini loaf pans if so how many would this recipe make and how long would you bake them for? thanks!


Lori December 4, 2013 at 5:42 pm

When I make banana bread I have to use two loaf pans. When I bough them I thought they were the big ones. Do you think I should use two for this? Looks so good!
