Apple Fritter Bread

For some weird reason our power keeps going out... not sure why especially since it is 95 degrees and sunny with no wind or anything.  So I am typing this blog post as quickly as I can so I can post it before the electricity shuts off the internet again.  Such a hard life. ;-)

I made this for life group at church this morning and everyone said that it was really good.  Hubby said it tastes just like an apple fritter and that I should make it again.  None of my kiddos were impressed but I kind of figured it would be that way. 

Bread Loaf
1/3 cup light brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2/3 cup white sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup milk or almond milk
2 apples, peeled and chopped (any kind)
Old-Fashioned Creme Glaze
1/2 cup of powdered sugar
1-3 tablespoons of milk or cream- (depending on thickness of glaze wanted)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Use a 9x5-inch loaf pan and spray with non-stick spray or line with foil and spray with non-stick spray to get out easily for slicing.
Mix brown sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl. Set aside.
In another medium-sized bowl, beat white sugar and butter together using an electric mixer until smooth and creamy.
Beat in eggs, 1 at a time, until blended in.
Add in vanilla extract.
Combine & whisk flour and baking powder together in another bowl and add into creamed butter mixture and stir until blended.
Mix milk into batter until smooth.
Pour half the batter into the prepared loaf pan; add half the apple mixture, then half the brown sugar/cinnamon mixture.
Lightly pat apple mixture into batter.
Pour the remaining batter over apple layer and top with remaining apple mixture, then the remaining brown sugar/cinnamon mixture.
Lightly pat apples into batter; swirl brown sugar mixture through apples using knife or spoon.
Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean, approximately 50-60 minutes.
To make glaze, mix powdered sugar and milk or cream together until well mixed.
Let cool for about 15 minutes before drizzling with glaze.

*I mixed all the brown sugar and the cinnamon and apples in a baggie, for me it was easier and saved a step.  :-)
*Next time I think I would add in walnuts.
