Apple Fritter Pull Apart Bread

This take on the apple fritter donut is a loaf rather than a fried or baked pastry, but includes the sweet apples and glaze that people love in traditional apple fritters. This apple fritter pull apart bread recipe involves layering dough and apples in a loaf pan and baking into a bread-like loaf that can easily be torn apart. This dish is along the same vein as monkey bread recipes, where balls of a yeast-based dough are layered in a bundt cake pan. Rather than eating just dough balls, however, you get the benefit of apples in every bite of this homemade bread. Although this apple fritter recipe looks like a challenge, the process is quite easy to create an impressive looking loaf. The techniques of making cinnamon buns or savory bread recipes will help in every way, because many steps of this dessert match up.

Firstly, the dough is prepared with ingredients like flour and yeast. The one benefit this dough has over other bread or cinnamon bun recipes is that it doesn’t require any resting or rising time. Lisa, the author of ‘Flour Me with Love’ recipe blog, moves straight into rolling her dough into a rectangle and cutting into 20 squares of equal size. The squares of dough get stacked with sauteed apples and overlapped in a loaf pan. For any loaf recipe, it is a good idea to use a relatively non-stick loaf pan so that your bread will come out cleanly. Lisa indicated to grease the pan, which should be more than enough to release your loaf when baked in a quality pan. If your loaf pans are a little older, however, you could always line the bottom with a piece of parchment paper, since that is where the apple fritter bread recipe is most likely to stick.

Quick and easy apple desserts are ideal in the autumn when apples are cheap and abundant, but not all apples are created equal when it comes to baking. Lisa doesn’t indicate what variety of apples to use, and that’s OK since you can use whatever ones you prefer and this dessert recipe will taste divine. The real difference you will notice between different apple varieties in your baked recipes is a difference in texture since some apples will hold their shape better than others will. If you want a firmer texture to the apples in your bread recipe, try using honey crisp, granny smith of Braeburn for the best results. Your apple choices may vary depending on how sweet or tart you like your apples as well. The best thing about simple apple desserts is that the apple choice is entirely up to you. If you have a full bushel of Macintosh, definitely use those, or if your family grows special heirloom apple varieties, you can try using those too.
