Recipe for Apple Fritter Bread

Apple Fritter Bread (Country)

Sharing is caring!

Country Apple Fritter Bread tastes better than any other traditional country bread. It is moist, and filled with fresh apples. Cakes baked in small batches make perfect serving size for holiday gatherings or weekend mornings when guests are usually reluctant to eat something sweet. My hubby and I enjoy making this special weekend bread available for baking at home every week. It is: wheat free, cholesterol free, refined sugar free, vegan (with some soy sauce as an option for those who wish) and tastes incredible without

With a golden brown appearance and an aroma that is wonderful. When you bite into it, you find a dense mass of moist fruit surrounded by a creamy white bread dough. The texture is slightly denser than some pound cake, but still has a crumbly exterior. The moist juice glazing the inside is rich and sweet. The flavor is just as good as it sounds; the slight sweetness and tang from the lemon zest balances out the rich flavors of the apples and cinnamon.

How to Prepare Country Apple Fritter Bread


  • Cake Mixture:
    • 1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
    • 1 teaspoon cinnamon powder
    • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
    • 1/2 cup softened unsalted butter
    • 2 fresh eggs
    • 1 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla essence
    • 1 1/2 cup flour
    • 1 3/4 teaspoon baking agent
    • 1/2 cup fresh milk
    • 2 ripe apples, peeled and finely diced (any variety)
  • Homemade Creme Glaze:
    • 1/2 cup icing sugar
    • 2 tablespoons milk or fresh cream

Step by step directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Prepare a 9×5-inch baking loaf pan by spraying it with non-stick cooking spray or line it with aluminum foil and then spray for easy removal.
  3. In a bowl, blend together light brown sugar and cinnamon and keep it aside.
  4. In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together granulated sugar and butter until it’s creamy and smooth. Gradually mix in the eggs followed by vanilla essence.
  5. In another bowl, sift together flour and baking agent. Slowly integrate this into the butter mixture. Once combined, pour in the milk to achieve a smooth consistency.
  6. Pour half of this batter into your loaf pan, layer it with half of the diced apples followed by half of the brown sugar and cinnamon mixture. Gently press this layer down.
  7. Repeat this layering with the remaining batter, apples, and sugar mixture. For added effect, use a knife to create a swirling pattern.
  8. Bake in your preheated oven until a tester comes out clean. This should take around 50-60 minutes.
  9. For the glaze: In a small bowl, whisk together the icing sugar and milk or cream. Drizzle this over the baked bread after it has cooled for about 15 minutes.
  10. Slice, serve, and relish the taste of tradition!


Q: Can I use a different type of sugar for the cake mixture?

A: While the recipe calls for granulated and light brown sugar, you can experiment with other sugars like coconut sugar or cane sugar. Keep in mind that it might alter the taste slightly.

Q: Can I substitute the fresh apples with canned or dried apples?

A: Fresh apples provide the best flavor and texture, but you can use canned or dried apples in a pinch. Just be sure to adjust the moisture content accordingly.

Q: How long does the Country Apple Fritter Bread stay fresh?

A: When stored in an airtight container at room temperature, the bread can stay fresh for up to 3-4 days. However, for longer shelf life, it’s best to refrigerate or freeze it.

Q: Can I make the Homemade Creme Glaze ahead of time?

A: Yes, you can prepare the glaze ahead of time and store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator. When ready to use, simply whisk it again to ensure a smooth consistency.

Q: Can I add nuts or raisins to the bread for extra texture?

A: Absolutely! Feel free to customize the recipe by adding chopped nuts, such as pecans or walnuts, or raisins to the batter for added texture and flavor. Just fold them in gently before pouring the batter into the pan.
