When you’re stuck under quarantine, there’s not much else to do besides baking, eating, binging Love is Blind and trying to keep some sort of normal life. I was looking for something to bake with things in my house and had a couple of apples that needed to be used up. I decided to make this apple fritter bread.
It was so good … I’m sorry to say I barely shared any with my family. Whoops! The bread was delicious, packed full of apple chunks and cinnamon. The bread makes a perfect way to start the day or a little afternoon pick me up.
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
2/3 cup sugar + 2 Tbsp
2 eggs, room temperature
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cup flour
1 3/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup milk
2 large apples,peeled and chopped into small pieces
1/3 cup light brown sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 to 3 Tbsp milk
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9×5 loaf pan with foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
In a small bowl, combine the 1/3 cup brown sugar and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon. Set aside. In another bowl, combine the chopped apples and 2 tablespoon of sugar and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon. Mix together and set aside.
In a medium bowl, beat together 2/3 cup of sugar and butter together with an hand mixer until smooth and creamy. Add the eggs in one at a time and beat until combined. Mix in the vanilla extract and then add in the flour. Pour the milk into the batter and mix until combined.
Add half of the batter into the prepared pan. Layer half of the apple mixture and then top with half of the cinnamon-sugar mix. Carefully layer the remaining of batter, apples and then sugar cinnamon mixture. Gently press down the apples into the batter.
Bake for 1 hour or until the bread is cooked through. Test with a toothpick. Allow the bread to rest in the pan for 15 minutes and then transfer it to a cooling rack to completely cool.
To make the glaze, mix together the powdered sugar and start with 1 tablespoon of milk up to 3 tablespoons to reach your desired consistency. Drizzle the glaze over the bread.
