Gluten Free Apple Fritter Bread

From our very own apple trees.

I've been looking on Pinterest and Googling all kinds of recipes lately, trying to find those that I actually have all the ingredients.  I'm ashamed to admit, some recipes have ingredients that I have no idea what they are or where to get/find them. 

When I find a recipe like this one "Gluten Free Apple Fritter Bread" I get all excited. I usually want to try it right away.  And I have to say, this one did not disappoint us, it's a keeper! 

The recipe is very straight forward and easy, with basic ingredients. We opted not to add the glaze, it was already sweet enough for us and perfect without it.  The hardest part really was waiting until it had cooled on the wire rack.

Maybe next year we'll be able to make it with our own apples!
