My friends and family ask me for this all the time. I find apple fritters at a coffee shop are nothing but sugar and give me a toothache just thinking about it, but this recipe is delicious and not too sweet! Try it and let me know how it turns out.

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Coat a 9x5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.

  • Combine apples, 2 tablespoons sugar, and 1 teaspoon cinnamon together in a bowl; mix until coated. Mix brown sugar and remaining cinnamon in a second bowl. Whisk flour and baking powder together in a third bowl. Set aside.

  • Mix remaining white sugar and butter together in a medium bowl with an electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time, until blended in. Add vanilla extract. Stir in flour mixture until smooth. Add milk and mix until smooth.

  • Pour about 1/2 of the batter mixture into the prepared loaf pan. Add 1/2 half of the apple mixture, and lightly press the apples into the batter. Sprinkle 1/2 of the brown sugar mixture onto the apples. Pour the remaining batter into the pan, add the remaining apples, and brown sugar mix. Press the apples lightly into the top batter.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 1 hour and 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool for 20 minutes.

  • While loaf cools, pour confectioners' sugar into a bowl and slowly add in milk. Stir until completely mixed, adding more milk if you want your glaze thinner. Drizzle onto the cooled loaf.
