Do you like Apple Fritters? I don’t mean the kind you find in WaWa or any other store bakery. Have you ever had an apple fritter baked into a fluffy, buttery, white cake loaf with chunks of apples and layers of brown sugar and cinnamon swirled inside and on top? I mean the moist, delicious and full of home-made goodness from the heart – just like home kind! I am going to tweak this some so it is gluten free and hopefully it will be just as YUMMY!

2/3 cup white sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1/2 cup of powdered sugar
1-3 tablespoons of milk or cream- (depending on thickness of glaze wanted)
