Glazed Apple Fritters

I am not a morning person.

I need a warning label that says, "Do not attempt interaction between the hours of 5 a.m. to 10 a.m. OR until thoroughly caffeinated."

Which is why in this household, breakfast pastries are made and served at a decent dessert.

But these apple studded fritters were so quick and easy to make it had me channeling my inner, peppy, happy morning person to wake up early the next day and make again! 

We should totally make these together at the ungodly hour of dawn. Are you with me? 

Here's what you'll need...

Sweet Potato Challah

Challah, a traditional Jewish egg bread, is one of my favorite breads to make. Not only does it make the most amazing French toast for the next day, the loaves can be formed in various shapes and braids which look impressive and beautiful.

The following recipe is anything but traditional. The addition of mashed sweet potatoes resulted in a super tender loaf and a slightly orange hue. Butter instead of oil added a richer flavor that complemented the sweet potatoes.
