APPLE FRITTER WITH RAISINS BREAD
· ⅓ cup brown sugar
· 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon, divided
· 2 Granny Smith apples, peeled and diced
· ⅔ cup raisins
· ½ cup butter, room temperature
· ⅔ cup granulated sugar
· 2 eggs
· 1-½ teaspoons pure vanilla extract
· 1-½ cups all-purpose flour
· 1-¾ teaspoons baking soda
· ½ cup + 1 tablespoon milk, divided
· ½ cup powdered sugar
1. Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Spray a 9"x5" load pan with pan spray. Set aside.
2. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar with 1 teaspoon of cinnamon.
3. In another bowl, combine the diced apples with the remaining 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and stir to mix. Set aside.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter and the granulated sugar. Beat the eggs in, one at a time until completely mixed. Add the vanilla extract and mix.
5. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour and baking soda.
6. Add the ½ cup of milk and mix until smooth.
7. Add flour and baking soda mix to the butter mixture, and stir until well-blended.
8. Pour half of the batter into the prepared loaf pan. Layer half of the apple and raisin mixture on top of the batter, followed by half of the brown sugar mixture. Gently press the apples and raisins into the batter.
9. Add the remaining batter to the pan, followed by the remaining apples, raisins and brown sugar mixture. Lightly press the apples and raisins into the batter and swirl the brown sugar between the apple chunks and raisins into the batter.
10. Bake for 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow to cool for 15 minutes on a wire rack before removing from the pan.
11. While the bread cools, prepare the glaze. In a small bowl, combine the powdered sugar with the remaining 1 tablespoon of milk. Mix until smooth, and then drizzle over the cooled bread. Sorry, I didn't add the glaze to mine.
