Apple Bread

1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/2 tsp. baking soda
2 cups flour (I use 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour and 1 cup all-purpose flour)
1/2 tsp. baking powder
2 heaping cups apple, chopped
1 tsp. vanilla
2 Tbsp. buttermilk

Beat butter, sugar and vanilla.  Add eggs and beat.  Add flour, soda, baking powder and milk.  Fold in apples and pour into greased bread pan(s).  I make two medium loaves.

Topping:
2 Tbsp. melted butter
2 Tbsp. flour
2 Tbsp. brown sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon.
Mix and crumble over batter in pan.  I sometimes double the topping recipe since I'm making two loaves and I like ALOT of this topping.

Bake at 350 for about 40 minutes.  (until toothpick comes out clean)

Glaze:
2 Tbsp. melted butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 Tbsp. water
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
Mix well and drizzle over cooled loaves. 
I double the glaze recipe as well.  It's going to drizzle right down the bread and settle in the bottom of the container in which you store your bread.  I like to use the leftover glaze to spread on a slice of bread.
