Gluten Free Apple Fritter Bread

While I personally have quite the sweet tooth my husband, Todd, has more of a take it or leave it attitude when it comes to dessert. He is a savory guy for the most part and TBH I don’t really mind that he could care less about the sweet stuff because that just means more dessert for me. However, when it comes this Gluten Free Apple Fritter Bread all bets are off because we are BOTH obsessed!

When I say obsessed I’m not kidding! Todd has literally been taking inventory of how much apple fritter bread is gone every morning before he leaves for work and then comparing how much is left when he comes home in the evenings. While I am glad that this dessert crazed behavior is not his norm it kind of, sort of feels like the ultimate compliment when he is grilling me about how many slices of Gluten Free Apple Fritter Bread the kids and I ate during the day.

This apple fritter bread is the perfect blend of sweet and savory. I knew if I was going to be eating slices of fritter bread with my coffee in the mornings I needed it to be a not-too-sweet treat. The vanilla scented bread itself has a nice crumb that is layered with pockets of cinnamon sugar laced Stemilt Granny Smith Apples, and a thin layer of sweet cider icing. A slice of this Gluten Free Apple Fritter Bread is just sweet enough to start the day off right but not so sweet that you’ll have a sugar crash later in the morning.

  • 3 tsp ground cinnamon, divided
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 TBSP vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups gluten-free all-purpose flour
  • 1 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1/4 cup apple cider
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 3 TBSP apple cider
  • Coconut oil spray

Directions

For the apple filling:

  • 1 Stemilt Granny Smith Apple, peeled, cored, and shredded with a food processor shredding disc or julienned
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar
  • 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon, divided

For the fritter loaf:

  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups gluten-free all-purpose flour
  • 1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1/4 cup apple cider

For the cider glaze:

  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 3 tablespoons apple cider
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spray a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan lightly with coconut oil spray, line with parchment so that the parchment hangs over the sides like a handle. Spray the parchment lightly with coconut oil spray as well. Set aside.

Make the apple filling:

2. In a small bowl, combine the prepared Stemilt Granny Smith Apple with the granulated sugar and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon. Stir to combine, set aside.

3. In a separate small bowl, combine the brown sugar wit hate remaining cinnamon, stir to combine, set aside.

Make the fritter bread:

4. In a mixing bowl, beat the granulated sugar and butter together using an electric mixer until smooth and creamy.

5. Beat in the eggs one at a time, completely incorporating one egg before adding the next. Set aside.

6. In another bowl whisk the gluten-free all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt together until combined. Add the flour to the creamed butter mixture and stir to incorporate completely.

7. Add the milk to the batter and stir to combine until smooth.

8. Layer the batter in the loaf pan by adding 1 heaping cup batter to the bottom of the pan, spread it out evenly. Top with 1/3 of the apple mixture, spread into an even layer. Then sprinkle with 1/3 of the brown sugar cinnamon mixture. Repeat the layering process by adding another heaping cup of batter, 1/3 of the apples, and 1/3 of the brown sugar cinnamon mixture. Repeat one last time ending with the brown cinnamon sugar being sprinkled over the top of the fritter bread.

9. Bake in the preheated oven for 50-60 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean and the top of the apple fritter bread is golden brown. Transfer the pan to a wire rack and allow to cool for 15 minutes before using the parchment paper handles to remove the apple fritter bread from the loaf pan. Place the loaf back onto the wire rack to cool completely.

Make the cider glaze:

10. In a small bowl combine the powdered sugar and the apple cider. Beat with a whisk until completely incorporated and smooth. Drizzle the icing over the apple fritter bread and allow the icing to set before slicing.
