We know you’re likely familiar with Fox’s Donut Den — or at least its iconic neon sign facing Hillsboro Pike — but are you familiar with the doughnut shop’s Apple Fritter Bread?

The dessert, also known as Cinnamon Apple Bread, is a holiday tradition ideal for a family breakfast or as a last-minute gift.

Just serve it warm with a little butter or get creative and make French toast. According to owner Norman Fox, the best time to pick up Apple Fritter Bread is during the week leading up to Christmas Day. Afraid you’ll miss out? Give the store a call at(615) 385-1021to reserve a loaf.
