Country Apple Fritter Bread Simple Direction:
1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Use a 9×5-inch loaf pan and spray with non-stick spray or line with foil and spray with non-stick spray to get out easily for slicing. Mix 1/3 cup brown sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon together in a bowl. Set aside.
2) Combine & whisk 1 & 1/2 cups flour and 1 & 3/4 teaspoons baking powder together in another bowl and set aside. In another medium-sized bowl, beat 2/3 cup granulated sugar and 1/2 cup softened butter together using an electric mixer until smooth and creamy.
3) Beat in 2 eggs, one at a time until blended in; add in 1 & 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract and mix in. Add the flour mixture into creamed butter mixture and mix until blended. Mix 1/2 cup milk into batter and continue mixing until smooth.

4) Pour half the batter into the prepared loaf pan; add half the chopped apple mixture with the sugar and cinnamon added in. Sprinkle 1/2 of the brown sugar/cinnamon mixture you set aside earlier, on top of apple layer.
5) Pour the remaining batter over apple layer and top with remaining chopped apples, then the remaining brown sugar/cinnamon mixture. Lightly pat apples into batter; swirl brown sugar mixture through apples using knife or spoon.
6) Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean, approximately 60 minutes.
How to make the glaze:
1) To make glaze, mix 1/2 cup powdered sugar and 1 to 3 tablespoons milk or cream together until well mixed. (Place mixture in microwave for 10 seconds to get it pourable if it needs a boost.)
2) Let loaf rest in pan for about 15 minutes before removing from pan to let cool off completely on a cooling rack. Drizzle with glaze.
substitute with 1/2 cup Greek Yogurt, 1/3 cup milk of choice and add 1/4 teaspoon baking soda instead of 1/2 cup milk as called out in the bread loaf ingredients.
Vegan: Use flax eggs, earth balance and almond milk.
TIPS: If you want more glaze, make a double batch. 🙂
