Apple Fritter Bread

  •  1/2 cup salted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup + a little extra turbinado sugar (can sub brown sugar)
  • 2 large eggs (at room temperature)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup whole milk (can sub dairy free milk)
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce 
  • 1 and 2/3 cups all purpose flour
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon 

Cinnamon Apple Mixture 

  • 1 and 1/2 cups Sugar Bee apples, diced finely 
  • 1 tsp cinnamon 
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar 

Apple Fritter Glaze

  • ½ cup powdered sugar 
  • 1-2 tbsp whole milk, to thin out glaze 
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract 


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. 

  2. In a large bowl, using a hand mixer, beat the ½ cup softened butter and 1/2 cup turbinado sugar until combined. 

  3. To this, add in the 2 eggs and mix until combined. Add in the ⅓ cup whole milk, ⅓ cup unsweetened applesauce and 1 tsp vanilla extract and beat until combined. 

  4. To the same bowl, add in the 1 and ⅔ cup of all purpose flour, 1 tsp cinnamon, ¾ tsp baking powder, ½ tsp baking soda and a pinch of salt. Mix with the mixer one last time until combined, making sure that all of the dry ingredients are incorporated and mixed in. 

  5. Dice the Sugar Bee apples into bite size pieces (should be about 2 cups worth) and then mix them with the 1 tsp cinnamon and 2 tbsp brown sugar until combined. Add 1 cup of the apples to the bread batter and gently fold them in using a wooden spoon or rubber spatula. 

  6. Grease a 9x5 loaf pan or add parchment paper. Gently add the bread mix into the loaf pan, making sure it’s spread evenly.. On top, add the other 1 cup of diced apples as well as a generous sprinkle of turbinado sugar to ensure that you have a crunchy topping!

  7. Bake at 350 for 60-65 minutes or until a toothpick comes clean. Let it cool in the pan for 10-15 minutes. Remove and place on a wire cooling rack.

  8. Once the bread has fully cooled down, mix 1/2 cup of powdered sugar, ½ tsp vanilla extract and a tbsp of milk (or more if needed) to make your powdered sugar glaze. If it's too thick, add more milk. Too thin? Add more powdered sugar!

  9. Generously drizzle the glaze on top of the bread and serve! Slice and enjoy every bite.
