A delicious and easy homemade bread that tastes like the classic fritter donut with a sweet glaze. Life-in-the-Lofthouse.comHi friends! Let me introduce to you APPLE FRITTER BREAD. A delicious and easy homemade bread that tastes like the classic fritter donut. Yep. You can thank me later. 😉

Raise your hand if you’re a donut lover? *raising my hand proudly* Now raise your hand if you love homemade bread? *Me me me* Well this bread is just that combo! I honestly can’t think of anything better than a slice of homemade bread or a donut on a Saturday morning with my family. So this bread was right up my alley. It is really really delicious! 

I was pleasantly surprised at how simple it was to make. That’s always a bonus. After I took a few photos Kelsey and I had a slice and then looked at each other like we’d just found gold. lol We each took a second piece and knew we were in trouble with how delicious it was. I immediately sliced up the rest and sent it over to my neighbors. I knew that if I kept it at my house it would be a dangerous thing. 😀

  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2/3 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup salted butter softened
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 ¾ teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 cup milk (I use 2% milk)
  • 2 Granny Smith apples, peeled then chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons granulated sugar + 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon mixed together
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons milk more or less depending on thickness of glaze wanted


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9x5-inch loaf pan with non-stick spray.
    (Or you can line pan with foil then spray with non-stick spray for easier removal.)
  • Mix the brown sugar and cinnamon together in a small bowl. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, beat white sugar and butter together, using an electric mixer, until smooth and creamy.
    Beat in eggs, one at a time, until blended in; add vanilla extract.
  • In a separate bowl, combine flour and baking powder together with a whisk, then slowly pour this mixture into the butter mixture. Stir until blended.
    Slowly mix milk into the batter until smooth.
  • Pour half the batter evenly into the prepared loaf pan; then top evenly with half the chopped apples. Sprinkle half of the brown sugar/cinnamon mixture evenly over the apples.
  • Lightly pat apples into batter.
    Pour the remaining batter over the apple layer, then top batter evenly with remaining apples, then sprinkle remaining brown sugar/cinnamon mixture.
  • Lightly pat apples into batter; swirl brown sugar mixture through apples using knife or spoon.
    Bake, uncovered, for 50 to 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of loaf comes out clean.
  • To make glaze: mix powdered sugar and milk together until combined.
    Let bread cool for at least 15 minutes before drizzling with glaze. Slice, serve and enjoy!

    Wow – this was so easy and so good! I don’t have a huge amount of success with baking so I am so happy that I have found an amazing recipe I can actually make well!

    Can’t wait to try this! I made the Lunch lady brownies, they were great even without the frosting. I wanted it but I am diabetic and didn’t want to spike my sugar that much lol.

  3. Too much cinnamon for us. Next time I will cut back on cinnamon in brown sugar and not swirl the top layer of apples in. Very moist.

  4. Very good. I decide to bake in 3 mini pans. Cook for less time unfortunately the apples were not quite tender. Next time I will bake in full size pan or maybe microwave the apples for a short period of time and try the 3 mini pans. Great no matter how you make v

    Excellent. I did change it up just a little with extra cinnamon and extra apples because i love cinnamon and had some extra apples that needed to be used. i also did not put the glaze on. we like t put slices of bread in the toaster oven to warm them up just like fresh out of the oven and it is also sweet enough without it. it is a keeper.
