My Amish friend shared this bread recipe with us, and it's been on repeat since!.

The warm and homey scent of cinnamon and apples wafting through the kitchen is a sure sign that Amish Apple Fritter Bread is baking in the oven. This loaf has a way of speaking to both the heart and the taste. The Amish have a long history of using only natural ingredients and traditional culinary methods; this is a practice that has its origins in the faith of the German and Dutch who settled in Pennsylvania, and this bread is a celebration of their legacy. Apple fritters, in all its forms, have always been an essential part of Amish and classic American rural cooking, providing a little touch of home with every mouthful. The soft apples, warming spices, and supple texture in this bread make it irresistible, whether you're having it for breakfast or as a sweet accompaniment to afternoon tea.

Those who want to take this simple dish to the next level may top it with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream for a really luxurious feast. If you're having it for morning or brunch, try it with strong black coffee or ice-cold milk to balance out its sweetness. For a tasty contrast, try it with crispy bacon or salty sausage.
