Apple Fritter Bread
Apple fritters have always been one of my favorite pastries. The problem is, for the past couple of years it seems like most places aren’t including much apple in their fritter. Solution to this problem? Make fritters yourself! We’ve made homemade apple fritters and love them. But there’s so much more you can do with apples! We took the flavor of a fritter and put it inside of a fresh, homemade sweet loaf. It’s perfect with milk, tea, coffee or juice. It’s great for breakfast, desert or snacking. Apple Fritter Bread is a soft and moist loaf packed with the flavor of fresh apples and cinnamon. This sweet bread is perfect for making after fall apple picking but it’s so good you’ll make it year round. Here’s how to make Apple Fritter Bread.

Should I put icing on this bread?
That’s up to you! It’s delicious as is, but you could certainly make a simple glaze using powdered sugar and milk.
How should I store it?
In the unlikely event you have leftover apple fritter bread, it should be stored in an airtight container or wrapper.
