Apple Fritter Bread

apple fritter bread

I’m  usually sort of “meh” on doughnuts in general, although there are exceptions. Apple fritters are one. I love the mix of delicious dough, cinnamon, and apple pieces.

How about a recipe for Apple Fritter Bread? It has all the deliciousness of its doughnut cousin, but since you make it yourself, you can create a version that’s a little healthier.

Apple Fritter Bread

  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2/3 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup oil (I use canola)
  • 1/4 cup applesauce
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 apples, peeled and chopped into small pieces, mixed with 2 tablespoons sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon
Vanilla Glaze:
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoons of milk
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Mix brown sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl. Set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, beat white sugar, oil, and applesauce until smooth.
  • Beat in eggs until blended; add vanilla.
  • Combine flour and baking powder in another bowl and add into sugar-oil-applesauce mixture; stir until blended.
  • Mix milk into batter until smooth.
  • Pour half the batter into 8″ or 9″ square 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 30 minutes.
  • To make glaze, mix powdered sugar and milk or cream together.
  • Let cool for about 15 minutes before drizzling with glaze.
I made this bread for the first day of school this year, and have made it again since. It never lasts long. Try it, and tell about your results in the comments.

  1. It looks good, but it’s more effort than I would put forth for myself alone.

  2. I used to eat these often when Roanoke had a bakery that made them. That was back when I was young and skinny. Would love to give your fritters the taste test!

  3. On your more recent visits to my home when I go to Jay C and get pastries for you all for breakfast you have leaned towards wanting cherry fritters. I love the cream filled pastries so much!

Thanks for taking the time to comment. I enjoy hearing from you.
