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.
