Apple Fritter Bread

I guess it was bound to happen; I am cooking daily for my workers.  I don't know that it makes them work better but it sure does make them smile.  I made this apple fritter bread for them the other day.
 In the bowl of your mixer, beat 2/3 C. of sugar with 1/2 C. of softened butter.  Beat in 2 eggs and 1-1/2 tsp. of vanilla. Whisk 1-1/2 C. of flour with 1-3/4 tsp. of baking powder.  Mix this into the wet mixture using the paddle attachment for your mixer. Slowly mix in 1/2 C. of milk and mix in 2 peeled and diced apples.  Pour half of the batter into a greased and parchment lined loaf pan.

Mix 1/3 C. of light brown sugar with 1 tsp. of cinnamon.  Sprinkle half of it on top of the batter in the pan.

Top it with the remaining batter.

Sprinkle the rest of the cinnamon sugar on the top.

Run a knife through the top to swirl the cinnamon sugar into the batter. Bake it at 350 degrees for about an hour.  Check it with a toothpick to see if it is done.

Mix 1/2 C. of confectioners sugar with about 2 T. of milk to make a glaze and drizzle it over the loaf.  Place it on a rack to cool.
