Farmfresh Apple BreadBy Rita's KitchenThere’s nothing like an apple fritter. Crispy, fruity, spicy, and sweet, they’re a real crowd pleaser, and I’m obsessed with them. Apple fritters are usually fried and loaded with calories. Fortunately, there’s a recipe that gives you all of the apple fritter goodness with a lot fewer calories: country fried apple fritter bread. Since it’s baked, you don’t have to worry about all of the extra fat from deep frying. It’s still an indulgence, but you can feel way less guilty about it.
