Apple Streusel Bread

Apple Streusel Bread

This bread is ridiculously easy to make and so delicious that you need to invent a whole new word to describe it because delicious isn’t quite adequate enough a word. Suffice it to say, I was completely blown away.

As I mentioned yesterday, Matt and I traveled up to the Catskills to go apple picking again this year. I’ve already done quite a bit of baking with my stash, and I’m, oh, maybe a quarter of the way through it. So there will be LOTS of apple recipes in the coming weeks.

In the meantime, I thought I’d share what happened with last year’s stash. Enjoy! And be sure you do not miss out on this apple bread. It’s AMAZING. You should definitely make it soon.

Ingredients:
BREAD:
4 cups peeled and chopped apples (4 medium to large apples)
4 large eggs, beaten
1 cup canola oil
2 tsp vanilla
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups granulated sugar

TOPPING:
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup butter, at room temperature

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease 2 standard loaf pans and set aside.
In a large bowl, beat the eggs with an electric mixer until fluffy. Add the oil and beat until combined. Add the vanilla, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Beat until thoroughly mixed. Next, add the flour and sugar and mix on low just to blend. Turn the mixer to high and beat until mixture is smooth. The batter will be very thick. Gently fold in the chopped apples. Divide the mixture between the two loaf pans.
For the topping: combine the flour, sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Cut the butter into the mixture with a fork (or your fingertips) until all ingredients are moist and crumbly. Sprinkle the topping equally over the two loaf pans and lightly press into the batter.
Bake for 1 hour, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool for 5 minutes before removing from the pan to cool completely.
