Well it is FALL! The weather is now changing and getting colder and my two favorite things are out- Pumpkins and Apples! Besides having delicious apple cider, caramel apples, and apple pie…. I decided I wanted something else packed with apple flavor. Then I stumbled across this recipe on PINTEREST- Where else? Apple Fritter Bread? What? All I could think was… OMG I can not wait to make this… do I have apples in the fridge so I can make this now????… sure enough I did and made this awesome bread right then and there! (PS I am on maternity leave so I have tons of time on my hands!) The smell that was in my house was amazing! It really made it smell like fall and the bread was amazing as well… it really is more like a cake tho if you ask me! I hope you enjoy this as much as I did!
Here’s what you’ll need….
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2/3 cup white sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup milk
2 apples, peeled and chopped (any kind is fine), mixed with 1 T granulated sugar and 1/2 tsp cinnamon
(The original recipe called for 1 apple but I added 2 because I wanted a lot of apple flavor!)
First…preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9×5-inch loaf pan.
Mix brown sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl and set aside.
Slice your apples and mix them with your OTHER regular sugar and cinnamon mixture.
Beat white sugar and butter together in a bowl using an electric mixer until smooth and creamy.
Beat in eggs, 1 at a time, until incorporated; add vanilla extract.
Combine flour and baking powder together in a bowl; stir into creamed butter mixture.
Mix milk into batter until smooth.
Pour half the batter into the prepared loaf pan; add half the apples and half the brown sugar mixture.Lightly pat apple mixture into batter.
Pour the remaining batter over apple layer; top with remaining apples and brown sugar mixture. Lightly pat apples into batter; swirl brown sugar mixture through apples using a finger or spoon.
Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean, 30 to 40 minutes.
Now lets make the icing!!!
Let cool for about 15 minutes before drizzling with glaze. Then, enjoy!
