Streusel Apple Pie Bread

Fall is falling and time for enjoying more apples in season!

This is a recipe from long ago and it missed getting into my cookbook. If I ever 'do' another, this will definitely make it in.

I found a similar recipe online recently and tweaked it a bit and this is what resulted.

It's wonderful - tastes as good as it looks.

I substituted one cup of wheat flour for the white, and used part xylitol.  


1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 c. sour milk
2 c. grated apples (about 4 or 5)
2 c. all purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. nutmeg (or homemade apple pie spice)

1/2 tsp. cinnamon
(or apple pie spice)
3 TB. flour
1/4 c. light brown sugar
2 TB. cold butter
1/2 c. chopped nuts

Preheat oven to 350 and spray a 9" X 5" bread pan with nonstick spray; set aside.
In large mixing bowl, cream together margarine, sugar and eggs.  Add vanilla, milk, and then apples; mix on low speed until smooth.
Add dry ingredients and mix on low just until blended. Pour the batter
into prepared loaf pan and spread evenly.

In small mixing bowl, combine first 3 streusel ingredients. Add small pieces of
butter and mix until blended.  (a pastry blender works well for this).
Add the nuts and stir. Sprinkle streusel over bread batter evenly.

Bake for 60 - 70 minutes (until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean).
Let stand for 10 minutes, then remove from pan and cool on wire rack.

If you want to freeze, wrap tightly in plastic wrap and then
place in freezer bag.  Don't forget to date it - use within 2 months.


  1. Yum! I also have a great recipe for Apple Pie Bread! It's apple-picking time here in MA. We can pick Cortland, Macintosh, and Delicious. I can't wait to go to the orchard!

  2. That streusel topping looks great! The whole thing looks great. Wish I could grab a piece out of the computer screen.

  3. Horray! I have just recently heard of other bakers talking about such a recipe....and now here you are sharing it! I look forward to making it soon! YUM!

  4. Oh My freaking heck...Wonder of Wonder...I really want a loaf on this right now. :)

    I cannot wait to bake this.

    Thanks for sharing!
