Tug-Of-War Apple Fritter Pull-Apart Bread

There wasn’t a crumb of this in sight, later in the afternoon. And everyone still brings this up on a regular basis, when there’s talk of amazing breakfast dishes! This is nice for a bigger group if you want to pair it up with something. When it’s just me and my two kids and husband, we can get enough of this to be satisfied as far as breakfast goes. If you do have anything leftover that you want to eat later, store it in an air-tight container so it stays fresh!

Check out what Erin over at Making Memories With Your Kids said about this:

“My Dad said this bread lasted 2 days in his house.  Ha!  That’s awesome.  I love baking for people who appreciate it.  Don’t we all?”

Indeed we do, Erin! Thanks for sharing your amazing recipe with us!




3 cups flour

1 package yeast

1/4 tsp. salt

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup water

1 egg, beaten

3/4 cup milk

1/4 cup butter


6 apples, peeled and diced (next time I will use 3.  6 as a TON of apples!)

1 Tbsp. lemon juice

1 cup brown sugar

1 tsp. vanilla

2 Tbsp. butter

1 tsp. cinnamon

1 Tbsp. cornstarch


1 Tbsp. butter, softened

1 tsp. vanilla

3/4 cup powdered sugar

3 tsp. half and half (or milk)



Grease a 9×5 loaf pan and set aside.

In a skillet, cook apples, lemon juice, brown sugar, vanilla, butter, cinnamon and cornstarch until thickened.  Set aside to cool.

In a small saucepan, heat the milk until it bubbles. Remove from heat and add butter. Stir until melted. Set aside.

In a mixing bowl add flour, yeast, salt and brown sugar. Mix until combined. Add water, egg and milk/butter mixture and mix until it forms into a ball. Mix/knead for an additional 5 minutes.

Roll dough out in the shape of a rectangle on a generously floured surface.

Evenly spread apple mixture over dough.  Cut into squares.

Stack the squares into your pan.  I turned the pan on it’s end to make this easier.

Bake for 45 – 50 minutes in a 350 degree oven, until golden brown.

Remove from pan and let cool.

In a mixing bowl, mix powdered sugar, butter, vanilla and milk and mix well.  Pour glaze over the bread and allow it to set for a few minutes.

Enjoy warm or cold!



Quick Tip: You could also use store-bought apple pie filling if it’s not too runny.
