Apple fitter bread is traditionally the recipe of medieval times in England. It is also known by the name Amish apple cinnamon bread. No matter what you call it, the recipe is a must-try. You will love the deliciousness of this bread filled with apples and the cinnamon and brown sugar topping. The glaze is to die for that is also a traditional recipe that goes back to medieval times.

I have traditionally tried this recipe, but sometimes I make it with a different glaze as well. You can do that too and even add some nuts to it. It is the perfect treat for tea time, potlucks, and when you have friends or family come over. You can make it ahead and freeze it in large quantities in your freezer so you do not have to worry about making it again and again.

Can I freeze the apple bread fritters?

Of course, you can. Just make sure to wrap it in aluminum foil when the bread is cool. Keep it in an airtight container to avoid moisture. It is perfect to use for 1-2 months.

  • Milk half cup
  • White sugar 2 and a half cups
  • Flour 1 and a half cups
  • Eggs 2
  • Ground Cinnamon 1 teaspoon
  • Apples 2 Make sure to peel and chop them
  • Vanilla essence 1 teaspoon
  • Baking powder 1 and a half teaspoon
  • Light brown sugar half cup
  • Butter half cup Make sure it is at room temperature

For the creme glaze:

  • Butter half cup
  • Light brown sugar ⅓ cup


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and start preparing your ingredients.
  • You can use any baking or loaf pan here. Make sure to grease the pan and add foil paper. Grease it again so you can get out the bread without any issue.
  • In a bowl start by mixing the brown sugar and cinnamon. Keep it aside and start beating the white sugar and butter in an electric mixer. Take your time here because you need a creamy texture.
  • In 3 minutes start adding one egg at a time vanilla extract, flour, milk, and baking powder.
  • Now we will start preparing the layers of the bread. The bottom layer will be the electric beater mixture on which you will top the apples. Then, the first mixture of cinnamon and brown sugar. You can now style your bread with the help of a toothpick by swirling it around creating a design or a pattern on the top of your bread.
  • Put the pan in the oven and heat it for 50-60 minutes. During the last 10 minutes, you can check with the help of a toothpick whether it is ready or not. If it comes out clean, it is ready, otherwise, give it more time.
  • While you are waiting for the bread in the last minutes, combine the two ingredients of the glaze and add it to the hot bread as soon as it comes out of the oven. Let it cool for 20-30 minutes and then serve it freshly baked to your friends and family.

  1. ruby ashley

    2and 1/2 cups sugar???


      I was wondering the same thing about the amount of sugar, an awful lot for the amount of flour????

  2. Deb

    Might be wrong, but think it should be maybe 2/3 cup white sugar instead of 2 1/2 cups. Did not turn out well.
