I've always been a huge fan of our local bakeries crisp on the outside, super moist on the inside Apple Fritters. I even created my own version years ago. And later, when my toleration for deep fried foods lessened, I even created a 'baked' version of my favorite fall sweet treat. But, I'll be honest. It just wasn't the same. Recently, I decided to try and develop a bread, yes, a bread, that had the same texture and flavor, but again was something baked. This Apple Fritter bread recipe is exactly what I had hoped for and SO much more!

For the Bread
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups apples chopped
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
Cinnamon Sugar (Topping)
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
Vanilla Glaze
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon half and half
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 350. Grease a standard loaf pan with spray or butter. Set aside. Cream together butter and sugar in a stand mixer or large bowl. Add in eggs and vanilla. Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Slowly add in the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Mix until just incorporated. Fold in apples. Spread evenly into the loaf pan. Meanwhile, combine sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar over the top of the bread. Bake for 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Allow to cool completely before removing from the pan. Whisk together the vanilla glaze ingredients and drizzle over the top of the bread. Serve. ***May be kept in the refrigerator for 1 week or freezer for up to 3 months.

    Wow! Man of the house said it was better than apple crumb pie! And he loves apple crumb pie! Might use a few more apple slices, and maybe chopped walnut pieces in the brown sugar-cinnamon topping.
