Apple Fritter Bread



Now that apple season is here, I have been buying lots of apples to keep in the house. My kids LOVE eating sliced apples with peanut butter, and I love throwing them in my morning smoothies. Last week, I bought a huge bag of apples since they were on sale, and by the end of the week, we only had two left. I decided to set those aside and make a yummy, new recipe with them. Since my hubby loves apple fritters, I wanted to try this bread out. Not only was it packed with flavor, but it literally tasted just like a fritter, only in bread form. The bread is a cross between cake and apple fritters. You could enjoy a slice with your morning cup of coffee, or as a sweet treat later in the day. With Fall among us, this bread is a must try, πŸ™‚



  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2/3 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 apples, peeled and chopped
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 3 tbsp milk



  1. Preheat oven to 350 and grease a 9×5 inch loaf pan (or you can use a muffin tray).
  2. In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar and ground cinnamon. Set aside.
  3. In a different bowl, mixΒ the sugar and butter together using an electric mixer.
  4. Once creamy, add in the eggs and vanilla extract.
  5. Slowly add in the flour and baking powder.
  6. Add in the milk. Set aside.
  7. In a small bowl, add the chopped apples with the 2 tbsp sugar and 1 tsp ground cinnamon.
  8. Pour half the batter into the loaf pan.
  9. Add half the apple mixture on top of the batter, followed by half the sugar/cinnamon mixture (from step #2).
  10. Pour remaining batter into loaf pan, followed by remaining apples, then sugar cinnamon mixture.
  11. Bake in preheated oven for about 55-60 minutes, or less if using muffin tray.
  12. Once baked, remove from oven and allow to cool for about 25 minutes.
  13. Combine the powdered sugar and milk together to create a glaze.
  14. Drizzle glaze over bread and slice into desired size pieces.
  15. Enjoy!!

    Oh awesome! Let us know what you think of it! My hubby brought some to work and everyone went crazy over it, so hopefully its a hit with you too!! πŸ˜‰

    I made this just a hour ago and was not impressed.
    Your ingredients say brown sugar and I always use dark brown sugar and so wonder if this might have been my problem. I added pecans and it turned out like a cottage pudding and wish I’d made a vanilla sauce.
    Also there is not a place where I could print it.

  3. Kristin says:

    Oh no πŸ™
    I am so sorry it didn’t turn out good! I use dark brown sugar too πŸ™
    There should be a print button for the recipe on the bottom of the post, near the “pin it” buttons. I will go take a look to make sure those features are still working.
    Again, I am so sorry it didn’t turn out good, what a bummer!

    Made this this afternoon in two small loaf pans. I didn’t change a thing and the mini loafs can out beautiful about 3 inches tall. I will double the recipe next time to make 4 loafs. Might use buttermilk and add pecan chips. This is going in my recipe file.

  5. Kristin says:

    Oh awesome! Great idea on making mini loaves!! I bet pecans and buttermilk would be a great addition to this recipe!! Good thinking!! So glad you enjoyed it πŸ™‚

    Love this bread. I have made it many times since last month. It’s actually my first ever baked product. I see it as my first ever step towards becoming a chef. So thank you very much!!

    making this later today , however I’m looking at the brown sugar and cinnamon topping and thinking seems such a small amount for such med loaf , also saw a typo somewhere online with the same recipie that called for 1 1/2 cups vanilla I was like to much vanilla so was glad I looked around and saw the same recipie , how small do you cut your apples would smaller diced up apple work or do I need bigger chunks like in apple pie , thanks

  8. Kristin says:

    Hi!! The amounts are correct for the brown sugar/cinnamon. It is more of a streusel than topping! As for the apple size, a small chunk is great!! Hope you enjoy this!!

    I just finished making this recipe into muffins. I didn’t divide it really well so they are a bit lopsided but I just had one (couldn’t wait for them to cool) and they are delicious. I wasn’t sure how long to bake them as muffins but 25 minutes seemed to do it. Next time I will make as a loaf as it would be easier. Thanks for sharing the recipe πŸ™‚

    made this recipe, not a big fan! too many steps and dishes. Bread was too sweet, the texture was not right. I put the double batch down garbage disposal. I will say I read the recipe wrong and missed 2 small steps and also used Dark Brown Sugar. I will try again for 1 loaf and pray it turns out. nIfnit does Imwill re-post
