The crumb topping on this bread makes it extra special. It's an old Taste of Home recipe.

My husband liked this a lot more than I did. So, I know I'll be making it again, especially in Autumn. For me, there wasn't enough flavor in the bread itself, so next time I'll add some cinnamon and sugar to the batter. I used one gala apple and it worked well. We both liked the topping and was excited at how delicious the house smelled after baking the bread. Thanks for posting, I put this in my favorites for another chilly day.
