After going Apple Picking this weekend the challenge was what to bake to use up the apples. Some of the Pink Lady apples will be my snack for the week, but I had another dozen to use up. I have some of my go to recipes I like for apple pies, apple crisp and apple crumb cakes. I like to try new recipes though too. So this time I came across this Apple Fritter Bread and decided to give it a go.
Dough – 3 cups flour ~ 1 package yeast ~ 1/4 tsp. salt ~ 1/2 cup brown sugar ~ 1/4 cup water ~ 1 egg, beaten ~ 3/4 cup milk ~ 1/4 cup butter
Filling – 4 apples, peeled and diced ~ 1 Tbsp. lemon juice ~ 1 cup brown sugar ~ 1 tsp. vanilla ~ 2 Tbsp. butter ~ 1 tsp. cinnamon ~ 1 Tbsp cornstarch
Glaze – 1 Tbsp. butter, melted ~ 1 tsp. vanilla ~ 3/4 cup powdered sugar ~ 3 tsp. half and half (or milk)
Grease a 9×5 loaf pan and set aside. In a skillet, cook apples, lemon juice, brown sugar, vanilla, butter, cinnamon and cornstarch until thickened. Set aside to cool.
In a small saucepan, heat the milk until it bubbles. Remove from heat and add butter. Stir until melted. Set aside.In a mixing bowl add flour, yeast, salt and brown sugar. Mix until combined. Add water, egg and milk/butter mixture and mix until it forms into a ball. Mix/knead for an additional 5 minutes.
Roll dough out in the shape of a rectangle on a generously floured surface.
Evenly spread apple mixture over dough. Cut into squares.
Stack the squares into your pan. The easiest way to do this is to turn the pan so the short end is on the counter and the long end is in the air.
Once all pieces are placed in the pan, lay flat on the counter and spread out so it fills the whole pan.
Bake for 45 – 50 minutes in a 350 degree oven, until golden brown. Remove from pan and let cool.
In a small bowl, mix powdered sugar, melted butter, vanilla and milk and mix well. Pour glaze over the bread and allow it to set for a few minutes. Best when served warm.
It is not as labor intensive as it seems so give it a try! You could always use Pillsbury dough if you don’t want to mess with the yeast.
Linking up with Jessica and Ashley.
You stop it. I normally hate any type of baked fruit dishes, but this looks so beyond good! Oh my yum.
It’s like apple pie in bread form! The apple filling was the best part! I wanted to just eat it from a bowl!
Jessica Miller says

Girl, you’re making me fat. This looks amazing.
You’re welcome! 😉 This is why I bring my baked goods into work!! Too good to resist sometimes though! That reminds me I need to hit the gym hard! 🙂
Katy @ TastyLittleCrouton.com says
Oh my gosh, this looks crazy good!! I work from home so I have no office buddies to share it with, meaning all the calories would go straight into me and my boyfriend – DANGER DANGER!! I don’t know though… this looks like it might be worth the extra 50 hours on the elliptical 😉
Oh that is dangerous! Make friendly with your neighbors and give some to them. Otherwise just work it off at the gym, it’s worth it!
Stop it! Every Tuesday I come over here (ok, I come over every day actually!) and sit in AWE of all this yumminess!!!
Thanks, girl!! Glad I can bring a little awe to the world! Love baking up goodies!
