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.

  • 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.

Cook's Note:

This recipe also makes 10 large muffins.

I made this as written. The flavor is excellent but it came out seemingly underdone even with adding 10 minutes to the baking time. Can’t really describe the texture, but not like a bread at all. Read More

First of all, I was going to make this as the recipe was written but use a large cupcake tin. I was able to make 6 large muffins. I needed to adjust how much apple I put on the 2nd layer of the muffin as I could have used more. I Put a streusel on the top instead of more apples but next time may try putting the apples on top. I baked them for 30-35 min . They are a little tricky to get out of the muffin tin if you don't let them cool. My husband loved these, I thought they could use a little more flavor. Read More

The bread was very moist and the flavor was spot on. The apples still rose to the top instead of being more interspersed. Read More

Followed recipe as is however the loaf was severely underdone. Even after an extra 30 minutes baking it was still not fully cooked in Center. Read More
