Gluten Free Apple Fritter Bread

As you may know, I personally have quite the sweet tooth. On the other hand, my husband Todd is more indifferent when it comes to dessert. He is a savory guy for the most part. TBH, I don’t really mind that he could care less about the sweet stuff, because that just means more dessert for me. However, when it comes to this Gluten Free Apple Bread, all bets are off. We are BOTH obsessed!

{{ This Gluten Free Apple Fritter Bread is the ninth recipe in our year long partnership with Stemilt! We received compensation and product in exchange for it. Opinions are always our own. If we don’t love it, you don’t hear about it. Thanks for your continued support! }}

Apple Fritter Bread for breakfast? What a way to start the day!

When I say obsessed, I’m not kidding! Todd literally takes inventory of how much apple fritter bread is left every morning before he leaves for work. Then he compares how much is left when he comes home in the evenings. While I ‘m glad that this dessert-crazed behavior is not his norm, it sort of feels like the ultimate compliment when he is grilling me about how many slices of apple bread was eaten during the day.

A golden brown loaf cake is on a wooden cutting board in top of a dark tabletop. The loaf cake has white icing drizzled on top and its dripping down the sides. A woman is standing in the background, she is wearing a tan linen apron and a black thermal shirt. The shirt has a decorative cuff around teh sleeve. The woman is slicing a piece of the loaf cake with a knife.

This apple fritter bread is the perfect blend of sweet and savory. If I was going to be eating slices of fritter bread with my coffee in the mornings, I needed it to be a not-too-sweet treat. The vanilla scented bread itself has a nice crumb. It’s layered with pockets of cinnamon sugar laced Stemilt Granny Smith Apples and sweet cider icing. A slice of this Gluten Free Apple Fritter Bread is just sweet enough to start the day off right, but not so sweet that you’ll have a sugar crash later in the morning.

What are the health benefits of apples?

The apple, especially with the skin left on, is packed with necessary nutrients that reduce risks of heart disease and diabetes and improve gut heath. The high fiber and water content in apples can also help with weight loss because they are so filling.

    I just wanted to tell you how delicious this Apple Fritter Bread is! The flavoring reminds me exactly of the apple fritters my dad used to get from a local bakery before I had to go Gluten Free. I had to wait a bit to get the King Arthur flour shipped to Canada from the US (since go figure we don’t have it here!) but it was well worth the wait!! Looking forward to trying many more of your recipes 🙂 Good thing I ordered a few bags….

    This looks fantastic and I can’t wait to try it 🙂 I’m wondering though what your gf all purpose flour blend is? Is it one you use or did you use a specific brand that contains xantham gum – I noticed there was none mentioned in the recipe.
    Thank you : ) and for sharing your recipes – it is much appreciated!!

      Hey Trish! I am so glad you are exited about this recipe. I always use King Arthur Gluten Free Measure for Measure Flour unless I decide to blend custom flours. The KAF flour does already contain xantham gum. I hope you love this recipe as much as we do!!
