Country Apple Fritter Bread

Day 115

Country Apple Fritter Bread

My daughter made this bread and wowed us, recently. With fall just around the corner, this is a recipe you’ll want to save for those chilly weekend mornings when your family deserves an unexpected breakfast treat.

It is so good and so easy that you’ll probably make it again and again. I know we’ll be asking Tate to make it again with our first fall apples.

Country Apple Fritter Bread

Bread Loaf
1/3 cup light brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2/3 cup white sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup milk or almond milk
2 apples, peeled and chopped (any kind), mixed with 2 tablespoons granulated sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Old-Fashioned Creme Glaze
1/2 cup of powdered sugar
1-3 tablespoons of milk or cream- (depending on thickness of glaze wanted)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Use a 9x5-inch loaf pan and spray with non-stick spray or line with foil and spray with non-stick spray to get out easily for slicing.

Mix brown sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl. Set aside.

In another medium-sized bowl, beat white sugar and butter together using an electric mixer until smooth and creamy.

Beat in eggs, 1 at a time, until blended in; add in vanilla extract.

Combine & whisk flour and baking powder together in another bowl and add into creamed butter mixture and stir until blended.

Mix milk into batter until smooth.

Pour half the batter into the prepared loaf pan; add half the apple mixture, then half the brown sugar/cinnamon mixture.

Lightly pat apple mixture into batter.

Pour the remaining batter over apple layer and top with remaining apple mixture, then the remaining brown sugar/cinnamon mixture.

Lightly pat apples into batter; swirl brown sugar mixture through apples using knife or spoon.

Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean, approximately 50-60 minutes.

To make glaze, mix powdered sugar and milk or cream together until well mixed.

Let cool for about 15 minutes before drizzling with glaze.

  1. Hi there, Maggie!! Rhonda K here! :)
    I was searching on line for an apple cake to bake and share with the team at school. While I was searching I came upon your blog and the recipe for the apple fritter; looks soooo delicious, yay! Everyone misses your Friday snacks. So, I think they would appreciate something warm and delicious; not quite from the Kapustin Kitchen though. Thanks to both you and Tate from all of us.

    I hope Tate is fairing well these days. We haven't communicated so I didn't know she was ill. Keeping all of you in my thoughts and prayers.
