A perfect combo of everyone's two favourite fall treats - this Pumpkin Apple Fritter Loaf is extra moist, super tender, and packed with fall flavour.
Does anything else scream fall more than apple fritters and pumpkin loaf? I think not. That's why I combined my favourite cozy fall recipe (aka super moist pumpkin loaf) with everyone's favourite fall donut - apple fritters with not deep frying required!
You can make this warm, spiced snack with minimal work, dishes, and time. Of course, you have to allow a couple hours for baking and cooling, but you only need to put in 15 or so minutes of work. Worth it if you ask me.
So what are you waiting for? Let's get into it!
Pumpkin Apple Fritter Loaf
Serves: 8-10 slices
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 50-55 minutes
½ cup oil (canola or vegetable)
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs, room temperature
1 cup pumpkin puree
⅓ cup plain Greek yogurt
½ cup honey or maple syrup
1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon nutmeg
3 teaspoons cinnamon
½ teaspoon ground ginger
½ teaspoon cardamom
2 apples, diced
2 tablespoons brown sugar
½ cup walnuts, roughly chopped (optional)
Apple Cider Icing
1 cup icing sugar
½ teaspoon vanilla
1-2 tablespoons apple cider, cooled
Preheat to 350°F. Grease a bread pan and line with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, add the oil, vanilla, eggs, pumpkin puree, honey, and yogurt. Mix well. Then, add the baking soda, baking powder, salt, nutmeg, 2 teaspoons of cinnamon, ground ginger, and cardamom. Mix into wet ingredients until just combined.
In another bowl, coat the diced apples and walnuts in brown sugar and remaining teaspoon of cinnamon.
Pour half the pumpkin loaf mixture in the bread pan and spread to cover the bottom of the pan. Scoop half the apple mixture on top of the batter. Repeat for the remaining layer.
Place in the oven and bake for 50-55 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool for an additional hour.
Make the icing by combining icing sugar, vanilla, and apple cider in a small bowl. Drizzle over the loaf when cooled and enjoy!
