I can't believe that Fall is here already, summer just flew by. But I do love having the cooler temps and open windows and the smell of apples and pumpkin baking in the house. This one is definitely a must-make.

Apple-Walnut Fritter Bread
It is packed with lots of swirls of cinnamon and slightly tart apples, topped with crunchy walnuts, and a sweet glaze drizzled over the top.

- 1/2 cup butter softened
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 2 teaspoons milk
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x5 loaf pan with non-stick spray. Place a rectangle piece of parchment paper in the loaf pan that hangs over the sides.
- Mix brown sugar and cinnamon together in a small bowl and set aside.
- In a medium bowl beat butter and sugar until smooth. Add eggs one at a time just until blended, add vanilla.
- In another bowl whisk flour, salt, and baking powder together, then add to wet mixture and whisk just until blended. Whisk in milk just until smooth.
- Pour half the mixture into the loaf pan. Add half of the brown sugar mixture then half of the apples, gently pat into the batter.
- Add the rest of the batter into the loaf pan spreading gently with a spatula, followed by the remaining apples, walnuts, and remaining brown sugar mixture. Lightly pat.
- Bake for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
- For the glaze- Whisk powdered sugar and milk together in a small bowl until combined.
- Let cool for 15 minutes on a baking rack. Use the parchment paper to pull the loaf right out, drizzle with glaze.
You can use whatever type of apples you like, I use Granny Smith. But Honeycrisp or Gala would also be great choices.
The parchment paper helps to remove the bread from the loaf pan easily.

Muffins should work but you will have to adjust the cooking time.
Hey there! I really want to try this recipe, but I don’t have a loaf pan. I’m wondering if you or anyone here has tried making this as muffins? Or maybe in a pie pan? Those are both options for me. Thank you!
If anyone is at high altitude that can also significantly add to cook time. I prepared mine a little different, sticking with all the ingredients used here, but I mixed the apples in with the batter and swirled in the brown sugar ingredients into it at the end. It was delicious! Thank you for the recipe! ❤️
I doubled the recipe and baked in a foil lasagna pan for 1 hr. & 10 minutes. Delicious!
Sorry, it took longer than expected to bake. Sometimes apples contain more water and, sugar than others which can add additional liquid. Did the batter sit for a long time before baking? That's another reason that could lead to this problem. Feel free to email me and we can troubleshoot 🙂
Not a Chef
I had the same issue as Candy. The fritter is delicious, but it baked significantly longer that 50 minutes in a 9x5 . We turned convection on and covered with tin foil at the end to get to prevent the top from burning. We used 2 pazazz apples instead of granny smith. Other than that, not sure why our bake time is longer than yours.
No, I dont use a convection oven. Every oven is going to bake slightly differently, that is why a recipe always says or bake until a toothpick comes out clean. But baked for 80 minutes seems way too long. Did you use a 9x5 loaf pan? Was it placed in the center of the oven? Feel free to send me an email to help you figure out what may have been the problem.
I made Apple Fritter Bread yesterday & it turned out very tasty...eventually. After reading previous comment, I increased oven temp to 360-degrees, After 50 minutes, it was all but raw. I ended up cooking for an additional 30 minutes (80 minutes in all). And while it cooked up fine, the top layer of apple-nuts-brown sugar was just beginning to burn. As an aside, I've never had great luck with any quick bread and wonder if you (Wendie) are using an oven with convection.
