Dutch Apple Fritter Bread is the perfect fall treat! Moist, flavorful and loaded with tender apples, brown sugar and cinnamon. Served with a delicious yogurt glaze drizzled over top.
Meet your weekend fall baking plans!
Back when I was little, I was obsessed with dutch apple yogurt. That’s right, back in the 80’s Dannon made a vanilla yogurt with cinnamon apples at the bottom of the cup.
It. was. the. best.
I consumed only a few things back then; oatmeal (with brown sugar), peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and dutch apple yogurt. Sadly, they not longer make it – but if they did… I’d buy all of it. I don’t really even eat yogurt, unless you count Greek Yogurt and that’s usually in something, but I’d be willing to convert back to my roots.
Needless to say, this heavenly fall bread (that I keep wanting to call cake – because isn’t it just that? cake?) is based on my nostalgic love for that yogurt. Cinnamon brown sugar apples layered with a tangy yogurt cake – it’s ridiculously good you guys.
To Make This Dutch Apple Fritter Bread You Will Need:
- dark brown sugar
- ground cinnamon
- granulated sugar
- unsalted butter
- vanilla extract
- unbleached all-purpose flour
- baking powder
- baking soda
- kefir yogurt
- powdered sugar
Start by combining 1/3 cup dark brown sugar with 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon. Once combined, set this off to the side.
In a separate bowl, combine 2 peeled and diced (medium sized) apples with 2 tablespoons granulated sugar and 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon.
Set this off to the side once thoroughly combined.
Then in a mixing bowl, combine 1 stick of unsalted butter with 1/2 cup granulated sugar.
Mix until smooth and pale in color – about 4 to 5 minutes. Add eggs in one at a time, mixing well after each egg. Add vanilla extract and mix until combined.
Combine 1-1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour with 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon baking soda.
Add half of the dry ingredients to the wet.
Alternate adding the vanilla kefir. Repeat.
Mix until smooth
Pour 1/2 of the batter into a greased standard (9×5) loaf pan.
Top with 1/2 of the apples.
And sprinkle half of the brown sugar over top.
Repeat with the batter, apples and brown sugar cinnamon.
Bake on the middle rack of your preheated 350° for 45 to 55 minutes or until a tester comes out with only a few crumbs attached.
And smells like a slice of heaven.
Once the bread cools, make the glaze by combining 1/2 cup powdered sugar and enough kefir until desired pourable consistency – about 2 tablespoons to 1/4 cup.
Drizzle the yogurt glaze over your cooled cake.
Cut and serve.
With a drizzle of extra glaze, of course.
