- Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a 1-pound decorative loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray or grease with shortening; set aside.
- For the apple compote, in a small nonstick saucepan combine apple, sugar, butter and cinnamon. Cook over medium heat for 6 minutes. Stir in flour and cook for 1 to 2 minutes or until juices are slightly thickened, stirring often. Cool slightly. Transfer to a food processor or use an immersion blender. Process or blend to a coarse compote. Set aside.
- Meanwhile, for bread batter, in a medium bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Stir in granulated and brown sugars; set aside. In a large bowl whisk together eggs, buttermilk and melted butter.
- Fold flour mixture into egg mixture just until moistened. Spoon half of the batter into prepared loaf pan. Top with small spoonfuls of half of the compote. Use a small metal spatula or knife to swirl compote into batter. Top with remaining batter and small spoonfuls of remaining compote; swirl compote.
- Bake for 50 to 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. Cool bread in pan for 10 minutes. Loosen edges of bread from pan; remove from pan. Cool slightly on rack.
- Meanwhile, for glaze, in a small bowl stir together maple syrup, melted butter and maple extract. Stir in powdered sugar until smooth.
