Awesome Apple Fritter Cake Bread – It’s A Loaf Of Sweet Nothings

Apple fritters are really delicious, but apple fritter bread is even better.  Once you get a taste of this bread, you will not go back to regular apple fritters.  This is the best cross of recipes ever! Seriously, even my husband and son, who do not like fruits mixed in with their desserts, love this bread. They both said that the apples wer enot soggy at all. I guess that’s a win for this recipe, right? Right!


There is definitely a reason why this is one of the top recipes on her blog.  You will most certainly have to make two if you want to share because you will eat the first one all on your own, straight out of the oven!



1/3 cup Domino light brown sugar

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

2/3 cup Domino white sugar

1/2 cup Land O’ Lakes butter, softened

2 eggs

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 1/2 cups Gold Medal all-purpose flour

1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 cup McArthur milk

2 apples, peeled and chopped (any kind), mixed with 2 tablespoons granulated sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Old-Fashioned Creme Glaze

1/2 cup of Domino powdered sugar

1-3 tablespoons of McArthurmilk or cream- (depending on thickness of glaze wanted)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Use a 9×5-inch loaf pan and spray with non-stick spray or line with foil and spray with non-stick spray to get out easily for slicing.

Mix brown sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl. Set aside.

In another medium-sized bowl, beat white sugar and butter together using an electric mixer until smooth and creamy.

Beat in eggs, 1 at a time, until blended in; add in vanilla extract.

Combine & whisk flour and baking powder together in another bowl and add into creamed butter mixture and stir until blended.

Mix milk into batter until smooth.

Pour half the batter into the prepared loaf pan; add half the apple mixture, then half the brown sugar/cinnamon mixture.

Lightly pat apple mixture into batter.

Pour the remaining batter over apple layer and top with remaining apple mixture, then the remaining brown sugar/cinnamon mixture.

Lightly pat apples into batter; swirl brown sugar mixture through apples using knife or spoon.

Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean, approximately 50-60 minutes.

To make glaze, mix powdered sugar and milk or cream together until well mixed.

Let cool for about 15 minutes before drizzling with glaze. Decorate with cinnamon sticks and walnuts.




Quick Tip: If you want a nuttier taste, use almond milk instead of regular milk.
