Apple Bread



This delicious bread almost seems more like coffee cake. It is baked with a streusel topping and after it cools, is topped with a cinnamon glaze. It's great with a warm glass of cider.

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.
