My husband recently ate at a little truck stop with some co-workers and they offered a french toast made out of fritter bread. He ordered the berry one and hasn't stopped talking about it since.
He said it was the best thing he has ever had!
(ok, I am thinking he exaggerated a bit)
So, I looked up fritter bread because I had never heard of it and I gave it a try. I made this recipe just as is, then I made a batch with blackberries and halved the filling part.
Both were delicious and I will be making them again soon.

Ingredients are as follows:
3 C flour
1 package yeast
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 C brown sugar
1/4 C water
1 egg, beaten
3/4 C milk
1/4 C butter
6 small apples, peeled & diced
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 C brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 Tbsp. butter
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tbsp. cornstarch
1 Tbsp. butter, softened
1 tsp. vanilla
3/4 C powdered sugar
3 tsp. half & half (or milk)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 x 5 bread pan.
In a skillet, cook apples, lemon juice, brown sugar, vanilla, butter, cinnamon & cornstarch until mixture is thickened. Set aside to cool.
Heat the milk in a small saucepan until it bubbles; remove from heat. Add the butter and stir until melted; set aside.
Put flour, yeast, brown sugar and salt in a bowl, mix well.
Add the water, egg and milk/butter mixture.
Mix until dough forms into a ball; knead for an additional five minutes.
On a well floured surface, roll dough into a rectangle.
Evenly spread apple mixture over dough.
Cut dough into even squares (I got 20 from my dough).
Carefully stack pieces of dough onto each other forming four piles. (use a spatula, it makes stacking much easier!)
Place piles of dough into prepared pan.
Bake 45-50 minutes; until golden brown. Immediately remove from pan.
Mix butter, vanilla and powdered sugar into a bowl. Add half & half; stir until you get a creamy consistency.
Pour on glaze and allow to setup for a few minutes.
I also did it with blackberries. I followed all the same ingredients, just subbing the blackberries for apples.
