Apples, cinnamon, and brown sugar are a match made in heaven. But now- it’s in snackable loaf form. This Apple Fritter Bread is stuffed and topped with apples which keeps it flavorful and moist. The brown sugar and cinnamon add the perfect hint of sweetness, but the apple really shines through – so make sure to pick some good ones! 

Apples are a perfect baking fruit. They really don’t need any added sugar, especially when mixed with cinnamon. Cinnamon brings out the sweetness of the apples and will give you the apple fritter taste you’re after. Whether you need an afternoon tea snack or breakfast bread, this apple fritter bread is exactly what you need. And you probably already have most of the ingredients. No expensive sugar substitutes are needed. Just the regular flour, brown sugar, spices and some apples and you’re good to start baking. 

This loaf is a great house gift! It travels well, so wrap it up and give it to the hostess at your next dinner party or take it to a housewarming party. You’ll be a hit! 

Three reasons why you need to make this recipe! 

It’s virtually fat-free. 

With only one gram of fat per slice, you can enjoy this apple fritter bread without guilt. You’ll be able to reap the health benefits of apples in a very flavorful way. 

You’re saving at least 400 calories.

Regular apple fritters are easily over 500 calories. This bread is so good you don’t need to waste calories on an apple fritter. One slice of apple fritter bread is only 121 calories, and that is even with the icing! 

It’s perfect for freezing and stocking up. 

Loaves of bread freeze very well, and this one is no exception. During the fall when you’re getting the best apples of the season, bake large batches of this bread and freeze them. You’ll have fresh apple fritter bread for months to come.

How to make Apple Fritter Bread (step by step): 

  1. Preheat the oven to 375F and spray a loaf pan with some nonstick spray.
  2. In a small bowl, mix the 3 Tbsp of brown sugar and 1 tsp of cinnamon together and set aside.
  3. Peel and dice the apples into small pieces and mix them in a bowl with the remaining 1 tsp of cinnamon.
  4. In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs and 1/4 cup of brown sugar together until lighter in color. Stir in the apple sauce, vanilla, and milk. Mix well.
  5. Fold in the all-purpose flour, baking soda, and baking powder.
  6. Pour half of the batter into the loaf pan, top with 1/2 of the diced apple mixture and lightly press into the batter. Sprinkle half of the brown sugar mixture onto apples then top with the remaining batter, apples, and sugar mixture.
  7. Bake in the oven for 50 minutes and to make sure the loaf is baked through, stick a butter knife in the middle and it should come out clean. 
  8. Let cool for at least 45 minutes before removing from the pan.
  9. For the glaze, mix the icing sugar and 1/2 Tbsp of milk together and drizzle with a spoon over the top of the loaf once it’s cooled.

Different ways to change up this recipe: 

  • Add a little sugar-free caramel drizzle for more sweetness and flavor. 
  • You don’t have to use the icing glaze, but it does add sweetness and it doesn’t change the points. 
  • Once you’ve enjoyed a few slices, and you want to use up the others you can use it as a crumble for a breakfast bowl. Crumble a slice onto a sheet tray and bake it until it’s slightly dried. Use it as a topping for non-fat Greek yogurt for a delicious apple fritter yogurt breakfast bowl. 
  • You could try this recipe with two cups of fresh, cut berries instead of apples to make it more of a summertime treat.
  • Add some chopped pecans- you can never go wrong with added nuts. 

Tips and Tricks for Apple Fritter Bread. 

  • Store in a sealed container for up to five days. If you do store it in the fridge, it’s possible it will dry out. It is better to just freeze it if you know you won’t eat it all within five days. 
  • You can use self-rising flour instead of all-purpose flour, baking soda, and baking powder. 
  • You can substitute almond flour if you need a gluten-free loaf- but the texture will be a lot softer, and it will change the points. 
  • You can definitely freeze this bread- as a whole loaf or even individual slices. Just wrap the loaf or slices in plastic wrap and store in a zip-lock freezer bag. 
  • The baking time can actually vary depending on the apples you use, your oven, your pan, etc., so start checking your apple fritter bread around 45 minutes and cook it until it’s done.

  1. Can you use self rising flour in the apple fritter loaf in place of the reg flour, baking powder and baking soda, and Splenda brown sugar in place of regular?
    Apple fritters are my downfall….

    Thanks

    1. Hi Paula.. yes I don’t see why not, I’d still add in a bit of baking powder/soda as I don’t feel there is enough in the self raising, just my preference (actually I don’t think it even has BS just powder)
      yes to the splenda, I never use it but I don’t see it causing any issues..
      Hope you enjoy it πŸ™‚

      1. Thanks. I have GOT to try this….like SOON!!! Maybe tomorrow I’ll make some….I’ll let you know how it turns out. I might just use reg flour/soda/pwdr….just that I have some self rising flour as well LOL

  2. Okay, one more question. I’m thinking these could also be made in muffin tins, and depending on how many are made, it could lower the points. I usually make my 2 ingredient cakes into 24 muffins…each is approx 1/2 FS point, so I can have 2 for 1 pt (psychological thinking I’m getting more lol). My question is would you bake it for the same amount of time?

    1. Hi Paula, no muffins would take less time, typically muffins take about 16-20 minutes so I would check them around that time and then just go from there

  3. Just made this, it’s out of the oven and cooling! So so yummy looking, can’t wair to try it!! Thanks for so many great recipes.

  4. I made this and I ended up having way too little batter for the pan size and bake time. Tasty, but super overbaked. Now I know for next time!

      1. Hey Drizzle,

        Thanks for the recipe, but I also had the same issue as Rachel Burns. Not enough batter and 45 minutes was too much as it was very overbaked. We used the same pan as you and followed the instructions to a T.

        The apples came out really nice but the rest of it was dry and spongy.

        1. Hi Jack, sorry to hear that..it is so hard to know what went wrong without being there.. I had no issues with the loaf baking well

  5. Currently baking in the oven! ?? smells amazing! When I put into my calculator on WW it came out as 5 pts for Blue. Either way I’m eating it, just thought I’d let you know. Thanks for the recipe! I will certainly try it in mini muffin forms next!! ❀️

    1. Hi Meagan, I hope you enjoy it, please know I build all my recipes on my own WW app based on the ingredients I used, if you build it on your app and got another point value then it is likely due to a different brand of an ingredient, also if using the nutritional numbers those included all ingredients even zero point foods and you will get a different point value

  6. Kate, thank you SO MUCH for this recipe. I was looking for an apple fritter loaf that wasn’t super sweet! Your recipe is WONDERFUL! It came out perfectly dividing the batter in half and layering the apple mixture as you describe. I added about 2 Tblsp. of sugar and 1 Tblsp of oil to the batter, but I’ll try without that next time! This looks so pretty when done, just like your photos! Thanks again for this recipe. I will be looking at your blog for more recipes! Hugs, Laura

    1. Hi Laura, Yay!! I am so glad you enjoyed the loaf, it is definitely one of my favorite recipes, especially this time of year πŸ™‚

  7. Well how about that! I’ve been following your site for a few years now and love your recipes! I will be making this for sure but I had no idea we’re practically neighbours until you mentioned St. Jacob’s Market. I grew up in Elora πŸ˜€

  8. 5 stars
    Great recipe! I made using Truvia brown sweetner and gluten-free flour and it was yummy. 10 slices is 2 points per slice with WW.
    Really hit the sweet spot I was missing.
    I reorganized the recipe but followed all ingredients. Yum!
