Apple Streusel Bread

Ingredients

Makes 2 loaves


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

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease 2 standard loaf pans and set aside.


For the bread: 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.
