Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oven to 350°F Coat a 9 x 5 x 3-in. loaf pan with nonstick spray.
  2. Streusel: Stir ingredients in a medium bowl with a fork until crumbly. Set aside.
  3. Cake: Stir flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl until blended.
  4. Beat eggs in a medium bowl with a fork just to blend. Stir in butter and milk to combine. Add to flour mixture and fold with a rubber spatula just until dry ingredients are moistened. Spoon half the batter into prepared pan; spread to cover bottom. Sprinkle with 1/2 the apples and 1/2 the streusel. Spoon on remaining batter, spreading to cover. Sprinkle with 1/2 the streusel, the remaining apples and then the remaining streusel.
  5. Bake 1 hour 10 minutes to 1 hour 20 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack 10 minutes. Run a knife around sides; invert cake onto rack. Turn streusel side up and let cool completely.

This cake is awesome! I added cinnamon to the batter as well for extra flavor. I found the topping to be more then I'd like so next time, think I'll half the topping. The batter also seemed thick but baked up nicely. I do think next time I'll add a bit more milk or egg. Still turned out great though.

With the abundant crop of apples this year from our trees I was looking for a good apple bread recipe, this fit the bill. It was very tasty, moist, and flavorful. The streusel running through the middle of the loaf is the best!

This was a great cake. Easy to stir together, easy to eat. In fact, the four of us almost polished it off in one day. (but I hid a slice for my morning coffee) Thanks for posting!
