best month for apples
So, September is the month for apple recipes. Freshly picked apples are the best for baking gluten-free recipes for pies, cakes, muffins and sweet bread. Nothing beats an apple that has just been picked from the apple orchard. The flavour, texture and aroma of crispy fresh apples are the best!
Apples make everything taste better, and add delicious flavourful juices to baking and savoury dishes.
an easy recipe for gluten-free apple fritter bread
start with the right apples
I like to use Honeycrisp apples because of their perfect sweetness. You can peel the apples or not; it all depends on you. I peeled mine because I prefer them without the texture of the peel on the apples.
Once you core the apples, chop them roughly. The pieces should not be too small.
the gluten-free apple fritter batter
I wanted to stick to a quick-bread recipe. This means only one flour. So, I used a gluten-free flour blend that is mainly rice-based, such as Bob’s Red Mill. I tried other blends, however, this blend worked the best!
To make the batter is super simple. First, cream butter with sugar. I used coconut sugar because it is slightly healthier than brown or granulated sugar. But let’s be honest, sugar is sugar, so always use it sparingly.
Next, beat in eggs and vanilla. I used one and a half teaspoons of vanilla in this batter, which is half a teaspoon more than I would generally use. The reason is, the extra vanilla flavour goes exceptionally well with apples.
Once the wet mixture is ready, stir in flour mixed with baking powder and some milk. The gluten-free quick-bread batter is now ready.
To add that great sweet cinnamon flavour to the apples, I mixed coconut sugar with cinnamon and used half of it to blend in with the apples. Sometimes I add a pinch of cardamom. That’s because I love the flavour, and the spice adds a new dimension to gluten-free baking.
The apples are then layered between the batter and on top. To finish off, I added an extra sprinkle of cinnamon sugar over the top.
be patient when baking apple fritter bread
This apple fritter bread recipe takes one hour to bake, a little longer than most quick-breads. The reason for this is the apples. I wanted to make sure that the batter encasing the apples is fully baked.
the cinnamon glaze — although optional, I highly recommend it!
Oh my, this simplest of glazes adds the final touch to this gluten-free sweet bread. But, of course, I wanted more than just white sugar glaze, so I added a pinch of cinnamon. This made all the difference to the outcome of the apple fritter bread.
The lightly scented cinnamon glaze soaked into the bread-making everything beyond delicious. Truly spectacular apple treat!
Yes or no to this apple fritter bread?

Apples come with loads of health benefits; as per EVERY DAY HEALTH, apples can lower high cholesterol and lower blood pressure.
