Bake. Top the bread with the rest of the apples and another 1/4 cup of brown sugar. Bake for 50 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit, or until a toothpick can be inserted in the middle of the loaf and come out clean.

Step 7

Glaze the apple fritter bread. Combine the powdered sugar with the milk to make the glaze. When the bread has slightly cooled, transfer it to a wire cooling rack to cool completely. Then drizzle the glaze on top.
