Apple Fritter Sourdough Bread, THM E, SF

Apple fritter bread is a sweet bread chock full of apples and cinnamon. You get all the taste of apple fritters without all the work. You can use any kind of apple…sweet or tart to make this bread.

This bread is delicious served with coffee for a morning treat. You can add a glaze to this bread but I prefer it without.

If you have been following my blog you will know that I love to bake with sourdough. Fermenting the dough makes it easier for your body to digest. Some people who are sensitive to gluten can eat sourdough bread since it has been fermented which breaks the phytic acids down. To me, there is something special about taking flour and water and turning it into a bubbling starter.

Sourdough bread is made by fermenting the dough naturally using occurring lactobacilli and wild yeast. This was the usual form of leavening bread down into the Middle Ages until it was replaced by other products. French Bakers brought sourdough techniques to California during the Gold Rush where it remains large part of the culture today.

My starter, pictured below, is over 8 years old. From this jar, I have sent our thousands of jars/packs of starter to help others begin their journey into this intriguing world of baking. If you would like to purchase a mature starter to give you a jumpstart into baking you can purchase one on the “Buy it Now” page.

I love the tender apple layered slices with a cup of coffee. I find that a good kind of cinnamon such as Ceylon makes it even better.

  • Combine water, sourdough starter, yogurt, egg white, vanilla, honey, vital wheat gluten, and whole wheat flour in a glass bowl. MIx well. Allow to ferment for 30 minutes. Add salt and yeast. MIx well again. Cover and allow dough to ferment for 6.5 hours. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grate apple finely. Combine cinnamon and Brown Sugar Sweetener. Spray a bread pan thoroughly with Pam Olive Oil Spray. Add baking soda to the dough and mix thoroughly. Drop spoonfuls of dough unto the bottom of the bread pan, layer half the apples, and half the brown sugar mixture. Repeat ending with the brown sugar sweetener on the top. Bake for 35-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool. 12 slices of bread.

When I measure out the starter, I always measure the water first. Then I measure the starter on top of the water. Your starter won’t leave quite as much of a mess in your measuring cup. My starter is quite sticky and will stick to everything.

This Danish Dough Whisk is an important part of my sourdough baking. It is so easy to combine ingredients with this whisk.

You can drop the dough anyway you want…it may look messy but that is ok.

This is how the bread looked before I put it into the oven. It smelled wonderful while it was baking.
