Do you love apple fritters, but don't enjoy the process of making them? Well, then this Apple Fritter Bread is for you! This easy-to-make loaf loaded with apple-cinnamon flavor and topped with sweet, tangy icing will satisfy all of your cravings.




  • Begin by preheating your oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Line an 8 x 4 loaf pan with parchment paper and spray with baking spray. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, toss together the chopped apples, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Set aside.
  • In another medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, beat together the granulated sugar and butter until combined. Then, beat in the eggs one at a time. Next, beat in the milk and vanilla extract.
  • Add the flour mixture and stir with a spatula until just combined.
  • Add half of the batter to your prepared loaf pan, then top with half of the apple mixture.
  • Spread the remaining batter over the top, then top with the remaining apple mixture.
  • Gently pat the apples into the batter. Then, use a butter knife to swirl the apples into the batter. (Two to three swirls are all you need.)
  • Bake for 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. (Cover the loaf with foil for the last 15-20 minutes of baking to prevent over-browning.)
  • Cool in the pan on a wire rack for about 10 minutes. Then, use the parchment paper to lift the loaf from the pan. Cool completely on a wire rack.
  • In the meantime, prepare the icing by whisking together the sour cream, vanilla extract, and powdered sugar. Add in the milk, 1 teaspoon at a time, to achieve a drizzling consistency.
  • Drizzle your loaf with the icing before slicing and serving.
