The days are growing colder, and that means it’s time to start warming up those baking recipes. We certainly are at Abt thanks to a collaboration with BlueStar‘s Susan Swanson, who crafts beautifully-made recipes that fit the season. She’ll even be doing it in-house here at Abt all throughout the season (check out our schedule to see what she’ll be cooking and when she’ll be by so you can grab a sample).

This time, she kicked off the fall season with a fall-focused apple fritter bread recipe that had everyone following their nose to grab a slice of the finished bread. Granny Smith apples, a perfect bread and a smooth glaze make her recipe one to try at home. Learn more about her tricks (like easy ways to macerate these ingredients) below.

Apple Fritter Bread Recipe by Chef Susan at Abt

Yields1 Serving

Apple Fritter Bread Mixture
 1 Large Apple, Preferably Granny Smith, Peeled and Diced
  cup Packed Brown Sugar
 1 tsp Ground Cinnamon
 1 tsp Ground Cardamom
 1 ½ cups All Purpose Flour
 2 tsp Baking Powder
 ¼ tsp Salt
 1 cup Granulated Sugar
  cup Unsalted Butter
 2 Large Eggs
 ½ cup Whole Milk
 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
Fritter Glaze
 3 tbsp Sour Cream
 ½ tsp Vanilla Extract
 ¾ cup Powdered Sugar
 Whole Milk If Needed

1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease an 8"x4" non-stick loaf pan. If desired, cut a sheet of parchment to fit both the bottom and sides of the loaf pan, allowing for a 2-inch overhang on either side. That extra paper allows the loaf to be lifted out of the pan once it's finished baking.

2

In a medium bowl, combine diced apples, brown sugar, cinnamon and cardamom. Allow the fruit to macerate for 15 minutes. In another medium bowl, sift the flour, baking powder and salt together.

3

In another large mixing bowl, combine granulated sugar and butter until light. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then beat in milk and vanilla. Finally, stir in flour mixture until just combined.

4

Pour half of the mixture into the loaf pan. Then, add in half of the apple mixture. Using a table knife, swirl the apples around the loaf in a serpentine pattern.

5

Bake for a full hour or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Cool in a pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove from the pan once it has cooled completely. Drizzle with sour cream glaze before slicing and serving.
