Apple Fritter Bread

Chopped apples and a brown sugar cinnamon swirl with a vanilla drizzle make this apple fritter bread a hit. You definitely don't need to tell anyone how easy it is to make.  It has a light crumb but is really moist at the same time. You can just drizzle the glaze on or if you have a sweeter tooth you can put it on a little heavier while the bread is still warm. The house smells heavenly. I think fall has just begun.

1/3 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
2/3 cup white sugar
1/2 cup butter, room temperature
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup plain greek yogurt (I used Chobani)
1 large apple, peeled and finely chopped (I used a Gala apple because that is what I had)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

1.   Spray with baking spray a 9x5 loaf pan or glass loaf dish.

2.   Mix brown sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl and set aside.

3.   Use a stand or hand mixer to combine white sugar and butter until smooth.

4.   Add eggs and vanilla and continue to beat on medium speed until combined.

5.   Add flour and baking powder, mix, then add yogurt and mix until combined. Batter will be thick.

6.   Spread half the batter into the prepared pan.

7.   Cover with half the apples.

8.   Pat apples a little into batter with the back of a spoon.

9.   Sprinkle with half of the sugar and cinnamon mixture.

10. Pour the remaining batter over apple layer; top with the remaining apples and more brown sugar    
      cinnamon mixture.

11. Pat topping into the batter with the back of a spoon.

12. Bake for 55-60 minutes or until tester comes out clean. Remember a metal pan will bake faster.

13. Cool for 15 minutes or so, then take bread out of pan to drizzle with glaze and cool on a rack.

1 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons milk or cream
1/4 teaspoon vanilla

Mix until smooth then drizzle or spread on top of warm bread.
