This Apple Fritter Bread is spectacularly moist and dense. It’s loaded with apples, spices, and topped with a decadent brown sugar-pecan topping. Don’t let fall slip away without baking this bread.
Is anyone else experiencing brain-spin that it’s already October?
This is the month of apples + pumpkins galore. All the local orchards are throwing apple parties the first couple weekends of October. There’ll be cider tastings, apple picking, hay bale jumping, and corn maze romping.
I searched high and low for a farm that offered Honeycrisp apple picking. We finally found one that still had some fabulously crisp, sweet, scrumptious Honeycrisps.
And this is what happened…
This is just a smidgen of the ridiculous mountain of apples my brood of 5 picked off those trees.
We went crazy and came home with an embarrassing amount of the best apples ever created.
I’ve never spent so much money on fruit in my life.
I ended up giving away some of our biggest, reddest, brightest apples. Don’t wanna keep a great thing to yourself.
Just like this Moist Apple Fritter Bread.
It’s just WAY too good to keep to yourself.
Once I tasted this luscious bread, it was slice-and-share time. Because I could and would eat the entire loaf myself within 24 hours. That would be good and bad.
This Apple Fritter Bread has a super moist, dense, and tender crumb. It’s almost pound cake-ish, which can only be good.
Resting in the center of the loaf is a wonderful layer of apples and spice.
Let’s just go ahead and have a moment of silence so we can gawk at the topping.
You can absolutely omit the nuts in the topping…but only if you must.
We adore the crunch of pecans mixed with brown sugar and cinnamon.
The topping is buttery, crunchy, sweet, and filled with fall spices.
A little simple glaze over the top = always welcome.
Next time (there’s gonna be a next time) I would probably mix the apples into the batter, to get chunks of apples evenly throughout the entire loaf. I’m kind of symmetrical like that.
But I’d definitely keep the layer of brown sugar mix down the middle, because it’s just so preetttty.
Breads can be so vain.
Here’s to a season full of apples.
And people to share them with.
