Apple Fritter Loaf – Gluten Free

One thing I have missed since going gluten free is apple fritter donuts.  This recipe is not for donuts, but this loaf really satisfied my apple fritter craving!

Apple Fritter Loaf is loaded with cinnamon and our fresh farm apples.

I topped it off with a cinnamon, maple syrup glaze.  The maple syrup was also produced on our farm.

Slice some up for your coffee break or enjoy a slice for dessert.

This loaf recipe yields 10 slices.

This decadent gluten free loaf recipe is sure to please everyone whether or not they have to avoid gluten!

The first  thing that I did to make Apple Fritter Loaf was to mix some brown sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl and set it aside until needed.

Then I dumped some granulated sugar and margarine into a large mixing bowl. 

After creaming the margarine and granulated sugar together with an electric hand mixer I added in large eggs and vanilla extract.

I used the electric hand mixer again to beat until smooth and creamy.

Once the ingredients were combined I added in some Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 Gluten Free Baking Flour, baking powder and a bit of salt.

Next I used a large wooden spoon and stirred just until the ingredients were combined before pouring in some almond milk.

I set the batter aside and cut up 3 apples.

Then I  mixed the apples with some granulated sugar and ground cinnamon.

Once the Apple mixture was ready I sprayed a 9″ x 5″ loaf pan with cooking spray and poured half the batter into the pan.

Then I topped the batter with half the apple mixture and lightly pressed the apples into the batter.

Next I covered the apples with half the brown sugar and cinnamon mixture I had prepared earlier before covering with the remaining batter.

Then I dumped in the remaining apples mixture and again lightly pressed them into the batter.

Next I spread the remaining brown sugar and cinnamon mixture over the apples.

Using a plastic knife I swirled the brown sugar mixture through the apples to create a marbling effect.

After swirling the loaf was ready for the oven.

I baked the Apple Fritter Loaf in a preheated 350F oven for 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center came out clean.

After removing the loaf from the oven I allowed it to cool in the pan for about 15 minutes before turning it out onto a rack to finish cooling.

Once it was cooled I prepared the glaze by combining icing sugar, pure maple syrup, almond milk and ground cinnamon in a small bowl.

Once the glaze ingredients were combined I drizzled them over the loaf.

This was a bit messy so I did it on top of a cutting board for easy cleanup.

I waited for the glaze to dry before cutting into the Apple Fritter Loaf.

The yield for this recipe will vary depending on the thickness of your slices.

I like to get about 10 slices from this Apple Fritter Loaf recipe.

Savour every bite of this tasty loaf any time of the year and any time of the day!

I tried this recipe and my family absolutely loves it! I omitted the glaze, however, just to reduce our sugar consumption. Apples range greatly in size - can you tell us how many cups of chopped apples instead of how many apples? Thanks so much

At last, a gluten free cake with apples and cinnamon. The smell of this baking was wonderful and it tastes delicious! I’ve missed apple pie and cake since going gluten free. Thank you for a lovely recipe, Kathleen.

Hi Wendy, I am so glad you enjoyed the recipe! Thanks for taking the time to share your review with us. Yes, there is nothing quite like the aroma of apples and cinnamon in the fall!! Be sure to try the apple pie recipe as well... Take care, Kathleen

Is there an option other than Bob's one-to-one? In addition to gluten I am also intolerant to corn and potato. But oh how I miss apple fritters.

Hi Jessica, I am not sure what other one to one flours you have in your area. You may just have to experiment a little bit. This love receives rave reviews from family and friends so hopefully you can find a replacement flour where you live! Take care, Kathleen

Can I use regular milk? We don't really do almond milk.

Hi there, I used our farm apples and trees are so old not sure what they are. If I buy apples I buy macintosh or empire. Take care, Kathleen
