Apple Cinnamon Streusel Bread

This bread is one of our all-time breakfast favorites. It is best eaten warm, but if you don’t have time to make it in the morning, it is delicious cold or reheated. We like to put a little butter on it, but it also is perfectly good by itself. The only thing you really have to do in order to enjoy it is make it!


-1/2 c brown sugar
-1 1/2 t cinnamon
-2/3 c white sugar
-1/2 c softened butter
-2 eggs
-1 T vanilla extract
-1 1/2 c all-purpose flour
-1 1/2 t baking powder
-1/2 c milk
-1 large apple, peeled and chopped small


Preheat oven to 350°F and grease a loaf pan.

Crumble brown sugar and cinnamon together until well combined in a small bowl.

In a separate bowl, cream together white sugar and butter, then add eggs, and vanilla and beat well. Stir in flour and baking powder, then the milk, and pour half the batter into the greased pan. Cover with half the apples and half the streusel topping, then pour the rest of the batter in. Finish with the rest of the apples and streusel. Press the topping into the dough before baking.

Bake for 50 minutes-1 hour, until a knife inserted into the middle of the loaf comes out with a few crumbs.

Note: I have also made this by dividing it into 12 muffins, and that was also delicious and less crumbly (worked well for traveling).
