Apple Fritter Bread
Apple fritters are my favorite thing to get at one of my local bakeries. Something about it just always pulls me in and I know it’s a treat I will enjoy completely. I’ve been really wanting to try making apple fritters at home but have always been intimidated by them so when I was think about ideas for #AppleWeek, I knew I had to have something apple fritter!
Now this is not a traditional apple fritter, it’s a fun spin on it made by combining apple fritters and monkey bread. I first made monkey bread way back last year, it was my chai spiced monkey bread and it was amazing! This recipe is very similar to the other one but with apples and a glaze on top that really makes it perfect.
Another secret ingredient I used in this recipe was Envy apples. Oh my goodness, those are some tasty apples and I was lucky enough to recieve a box for doing #AppleWeek and I think they disappeared within a week. Seriously, if you see them in the stores, go buy them! They are amazing apples!
