Ingredients:

1/3 cup light brown sugar

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

2 large apples, peeled, cored, and diced

2/3 cup white sugar

1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened

2 eggs, at room temperature

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 cup milk

For the Glaze:

1/2 cup powdered sugar

2-3 tablespoons milk or cream





Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease or line a 9×5 inch loaf pan.

Mix brown sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon in a bowl. Coat the diced apples in this mixture; set aside.

Cream white sugar and butter until fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time, then the vanilla.

Sift flour and baking powder together. Gradually mix into the creamed mixture, alternating with milk

Pour half the batter into the pan. Add half the apple mix, patting down lightly. Cover with remaining batter and apples.

Bake for 50-60 minutes. Cool slightly before glazing.

For the glaze, mix powdered sugar with milk or cream to desired consistency and drizzle over the bread.

Variations & Tips:

Mix in chopped walnuts or pecans with the apples for extra crunch.

Substitute milk with heavy cream for a richer loaf.

Add apple sauce to the batter for additional moisture.

Enhance the spice mix with nutmeg or allspice.

Canned apples can be used off-season, though fresh apples are recommended for the best result.

This Amish Apple Fritter Bread, best served warm, is a testament to the joy of simple, comforting bakes. Whether as a gesture of hospitality or a treat for your own enjoyment, its warm spices and tender apples are sure to bring a touch of coziness to any table.
