It’s fall y’all. And that means it’s time for our annual trip to the apple orchard. Some go for the apple cider donuts, others go for the apple pie slushies. But we go for one reason…to get our bake on! With many apple recipes under our belt, we’ve decided that this is the Saturday to give Country Apple Fritter Bread a try. Cinnamon-sugar and apples baked right inside warm bread. A perfect treat for a fall day. Fallalalala!!!
Brown Sugar/Cinnamon Mixture:
• 1/3 cup light brown sugar
• 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
• 2/3 cup white sugar
• 1/2 cup butter softened
• 2 egg whites
• 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
• 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
• 1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
• 1/2 cup almond milk
• 2 Gala apples, peeled and chopped, mixed with 2 tablespoons granulated sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon
Old-Fashioned Creme Glaze
• 1/2 cup of powdered sugar
• 1-3 tablespoons of almond milk
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.
2 Mix brown sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl. Set aside.
3 In another medium-sized bowl, beat white sugar and butter together using an electric mixer until smooth and creamy.
4 Beat in eggs whites, 1 at a time, until blended in; add in vanilla extract.
5 Combine & whisk flour and baking powder together in another bowl and add into creamed butter mixture and stir until blended.
6 Mix almond milk into the batter until smooth.
7 Pour half the batter into the prepared loaf pan; add half the chopped apple mixture.
8 Sprinkle 1/2 of the brown sugar/cinnamon mixture you set aside earlier, on top of apple layer.
9 Pour the remaining batter over apple layer and top with remaining chopped apples, then the remaining brown sugar/cinnamon mixture.
10 Lightly pat apples into batter; swirl brown sugar mixture through apples using knife or spoon.
11 Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean, approximately 50-60 minutes.
12 To make glaze, mix powdered sugar and milk or cream together until well mixed.
13 Let cool for about 15 minutes before drizzling with glaze.
