Country Apple Fritter Bread

A friend posted this recipe on Facebook, and I just happened to be long some early Michigan apples, and everything else, so I gave it a try. This turned out to be fairly easy and quick, though it turned out a bit sweet for my taste. It’s moist and dense, with a good amount of cinnamon.

Ingredients & Directions

Brown Sugar/Cinnamon Mixture:
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Bread loaf:
  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs room temp
  • 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 room temp
Chopped Apple Mixture
  • 2 large apples any kind, peeled and chopped small, but not fine. Then toss apples with 2 tablespoons granulated sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon just before adding it to the cake mixture.
Old-Fashioned Creme Glaze
  1. 1/2 cup of powdered sugar
  2. 1-3 tablespoons of milk or cream-depending on thickness of glaze wanted. For more apple fritter style, like an apple fritter donut- use more milk for a thinner glaze that you can pour over the whole loaf.

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Use a 9×5-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.
  2. Mix 1/3 cup brown sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon together in a bowl. Set aside.
  3. Combine & whisk 1 & 1/2 cups flour and 1 & 3/4 teaspoons baking powder together in another bowl and set aside.
  4. In another medium-sized bowl, beat 2/3 cup granulated sugar and 1/2 cup softened butter together using an electric mixer until smooth and creamy.
  5. Beat in 2 eggs, one at a time until blended in; add in 1 & 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract and mix in.
  6. Add the flour mixture into creamed butter mixture and mix until blended.
  7. Mix 1/2 cup milk into batter and continue mixing until smooth.
  8. Pour half the batter into the prepared loaf pan; add half the chopped apple mixture with the sugar and cinnamon added in.
  9. Sprinkle 1/2 of the brown sugar/cinnamon mixture you set aside earlier, on top of apple layer.
  10. Pour the remaining batter over apple layer and top with remaining chopped apples, then the remaining brown sugar/cinnamon mixture.
  11. Lightly pat apples into batter; swirl brown sugar mixture through apples using knife or spoon.
  12. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean, approximately 60 minutes.
  13. To make glaze, mix 1/2 cup powdered sugar and 1 to 3 tablespoons milk or cream together until well mixed. (Place mixture in microwave for 10 seconds to get it pourable if it needs a boost.)
  14. Let loaf rest in pan for about 15 minutes before removing from pan to let cool off completely on a cooling rack. Drizzle with glaze.
  15. If you want more glaze, make a double batch.
