Apple Fritter Bread

Apple Fritter Bread – A quick and easy fall breakfast or dessert! Balls of biscuit dough and rolled in butter and cinnamon sugar combined with apples and baked until caramelized.  The apple fritter bread is then topped with a glaze and is ready to be served!

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!

How to make apple fritter monkey bread

Step 1 – Cut up biscuits

Remove biscuits from the can and cut each into four equally sized pieces.

Step 2 – Roll each biscuit and coat with cinnamon sugar

Take each piece of biscuit and roll it into a ball.  Place half of the balls into melted butter and then a cinnamon sugar blend before placing them in the pan.

Step 3 – Add in apples

Add half of the apples to the pan.

Step 4 – Repeat

Repeat with the remaining balls of biscuit dough and apples.

Step 5 – Bake

Bake for 40-50 minutes or until golden brown.

Step 6 – Top with glaze

Mix together milk and powdered sugar and drizzle over the top of the apple fritter monkey bread.
