This glazed apple fritter bread is tender, moist and packed full of sweet apples. It's got a crunchy cinnamon top and a sweet glaze. Forget the fryer, this quick bread is so much easier!
For the Apples
2mediumapplespeeled and finely chopped (1/4-inch pieces or smaller)
For the Bread
1 1/2cupall purpose flour
1 3/4tspbaking powder
For the Glaze
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x5-inch loaf pan with baking spray or line with parchment paper, set aside.
In a medium size mixing bowl combine the chopped apple, brown sugar, cornstarch, and cinnamon. Toss to evenly coat the apples, set aside.
In a large mixing bowl (with a hand mixer) or the bowl of a stand mixer, mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg on low. With mixing speed on low, gradually add the butter one tablespoon at a time. Continue mixing until crumbs form, about 2 minutes.
Add the eggs, vanilla, sour cream and milk. Beat on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 1-2 minutes, scraping the bottom of the bowl half way through.
Pour half of the batter into the prepared pan. Add half the apples mixture. Lightly pat the apples into the batter. Pour the remaining batter over top, then the remaining apples. Use a knife to swirl it together a bit.
Place in oven and bake for 45-60 minutes, or until the center is set. Baking time will vary, so watch it at the 45 minute mark & test for doneness. Remove from the oven and allow the bread to cool for 30 minutes in the pan before removing.
To Make the Glaze
Whisk together the powdered sugar and 1 tbsp. of milk. Add more milk to reach desired consistency. Drizzle glaze over bread, allow 15 minutes for the glaze to firm up
-Nuts or cranberries would make a great addition to this bread!
