If you like apple fritters then you’ll love this Apple Fritter Pull-Apart Bread!  I tried rolling the dough, like cinnamon rolls, however the texture wasn’t right.  So even though this may look somewhat complicated to make, it’s not.  You get all the flavors of an apple fritter, the texture and the wonderful glaze baked into one big bread.  We ate ours warm and it is delicious!
