  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 1/2 cups diced apples (peeled and cored)

For the Cinnamon Swirl:

  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

For the Glaze:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2-3 tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a 9×5-inch loaf pan.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and ground cinnamon. Set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.
  4. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, followed by the vanilla extract.
  5. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, alternating with buttermilk, until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.
  6. Gently fold in the diced apples until evenly distributed throughout the batter.
  7. In a small bowl, mix together the granulated sugar and ground cinnamon for the cinnamon swirl.
  8. Pour half of the batter into the prepared loaf pan. Sprinkle half of the cinnamon sugar mixture evenly over the batter. Pour the remaining batter on top and sprinkle the remaining cinnamon sugar mixture over the top.
  9. Use a knife to gently swirl the cinnamon sugar mixture into the batter.
  10. Bake in the preheated oven for 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  11. Allow the bread to cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely.
  12. Once the bread has cooled, prepare the glaze by whisking together the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract until smooth. Drizzle the glaze over the cooled bread.
  13. Slice, serve, and enjoy the deliciousness of this Cinnamon Swirl Apple Fritter Bread!
