Apple Crumb Pie Loaf Bread

Apple Crumb Pie Loaf Bread


  • 4 small/medium apples, peeled, cored and chopped
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/3 cups brown sugar
  • 1 1/3 cups whole milk
  • 2/3 cup oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon cloves
  • 2/3 cup natural coconut
  • 2/3 cup chopped pecans


  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 6 tablespoons cold, unsalted butter

Preheat the oven to 350 and line two loaf pans with parchment paper so that the paper hangs over the sides.

In a saucepan, cook the apples, water and lemon juice over medium heat for about 15 minutes, until the apples are soft.  Mash the apples, leaving them slightly chunky.

In a large bowl, whisk together the apples, eggs, sugar, milk, oil and vanilla.  In a separate bowl, combine the remaining dry ingredients.  Stir the dry ingredients into the wet, just until moistened.  Divide the batter between the pans.

For the streusel, use a pastry cutter to combine the flour, sugar and butter until crumbly.  Sprinkle the streusel over the batter.  Bake the bread for 45-55 minutes, until a sharp knife inserted in the center comes out clean.  (If the topping starts to get too brown, you can cover the bread loosely with foil.)

Cool the bread on a wire rack and serve warm.
