Apple Fritter Bread
Apple Fritter Bread
Apple Fritter Bread is a recipe that I made during “apple season” and have been making ever since. I just can’t seem to get enough of this bread! It’s delicious! I first saw this recipe on Pinterest or should I say, I first saw a ‘picture’ of apple fritter bread on Pinterest and have always wanted to make it. This recipe is outstanding and I’m so glad that we gave it a try!
“Apple Season” here in Wisconsin starts in early September and runs through early November, with the peak season being in October. Since then I have made this recipe for apple fritter bread more times than I can count. It’s that good! My husband was on vacation in September and we stopped at our favorite apple orchard; Everflow. With this recipe in mind and an arm load of apples, back home we went for some apple baking time.
Anytime is a Good Time
Now just because it’s no longer apple season doesn’t mean you can’t make a loaf or two of apple fritter bread. Thankfully apples are available year round and come in many different kinds, shapes and sizes. The next time you go grocery shopping pick-up a large honey crisp apple and make some bread. If you aren’t a fan of honey crisp apples, purchase your favorite kind of apple. Personally I love honey crisp apples. Aldi has super large honey crisp apples that you can purchase individually. They’re really, really good and one jumbo apple will easily make one loaf of apple fritter bread.
Do you like apples? So do we. Here are a few of our favorite apple recipes. Apple Walnut Sourdough Muffins, and Waldorf Chicken Salad, Apples can be used in both sweet and savory dishes. The next time you prepare a pork roast in the crock pot, add a cored, sliced apple along with the vegetables. Add sweetness to sauerkraut by adding a chopped apple. During cooking the apple will become soft and therefore blends with the sauerkraut. Delicious piled high on a grilled bratwurst.
