A Great Start To The Morning!

Growing up my family ate out all of the time, but one of my fondest memories were our Saturday mornings.  We would go to Winchell’s (a donut shop) and I would always order a hot tea, with cream, and an apple fritter. Now I had an art to eating it too!  Each bite had to be dipped into my tea to give it the just right amount of moisture. Man oh man, I miss those mornings!

Anyhow, several years ago I bought this recipe off of eBay from a lady who said it was a German dish.  I wish I still had her contact info because she deserves credit for the Apple Fritter Bread. I’ve been making it for years and it is wonderful each and every time.

So why not start the day off just like those fond memories? I think I will! Apple Fritter Bread is calling my name!

    I made this for my husband b/c he can’t NOT ever grab an apple fritter from the donut store and he loved it! Its ooey-gooey from the brown sugar and a perfect sweet treat. He had a slice in the morning, afternoon, & after dinner! I’ll try the recipe again to perfect it as my glaze didn’t turn out exactly as i had hoped but this recipe is definitely a new go-to treat for my family! Super easy to follow and makes the house smell so yummy!
