Apple Crumble Bread *WINNER ANNOUNCED BELOW*

Definitely one of my best recipes to date.  This bread is addictive, you are lucky it makes 2 loaves because one would be a complete joke! 


Seriously I took my moms zucchini bread recipe and I made a considerable amount of changes.  I am not good with bread recipes, so I tend to change up a handful of my basic recipes.  That is what I did with this one anyway and it is MAH-velous! 

As you will read in the recipe I chopped one apple and I grated the other.  In the photo you can see chunks of apple and that my friends, is like a lucky surprise!  The grated apple adds sweetness throughout and the chunks are just beautiful things!  The crumble on top makes this bread one step closer to heaven and you won't even need butter or anything on it.  I just was hungry for bread, like banana bread but not.  So I did apple and then wanted a crumble top and oh no, I drooled again.  Let's get this in your ovens!

You will need:

3 eggs
2 cups granulated sugar
2 large apples, peeled, 1 grated, and one chopped small
2 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
3 tsp. cinnamon
3 cups flour

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.  Spray 2 standard loaf pans with non stick cooking spray. 

In a large bowl or stand mixer bowl, combine eggs and sugar and let rip until it is completely combined.  Add in vanilla, baking powder, salt, baking soda, and cinnamon and mix until it is nice and smooth.  Now add in flour AND apples.  Mix again until combined.   Divide into 2 loaf pans.  Then make your crumble.

Crumble (lets be real, I doubled this)
3/4 cup flour
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup softened butter
1 tsp. cinnamon

Combine using a fork, until it is all mixed.  Divide between your two loaves of bread and then bake for approximately 50-60 minutes.  When a knife or toothpick poked into the middle comes out clean of wet batter, you are done!  Remove from the oven and let cook 20 minutes on a cooling rack.  Remove from loaf pan and dive in, both feet AND your head.  It is DELISH!

ENJOY!

  1. I can't wait to make this tomorrow. I bake different breads to have for breakfast and this sounds heavenly. I may have to hide the second loaf in the veggie drawer so it won't disappear too quickly. You know the guys never look in the veggie drawer for food !!! ;))

  2. Chris... I know I've joined your site before, but for some reason it's telling me that I can't sign in right now. Maybe others are having the same problem? Anyway! I love your site and your recipes! I hope this qualifies me for a chance at your giveaways! :-) ~ Lynn

  4. This looks delish, I'm simply wondering, is there any substitutions I can make for the cinnamon? I'm the only one in my household who doesn't like it, or is it a small enough amount that I wouldn't notice the flavor?

    1. How about nutmeg? You will definitely taste the cinnamon. You could just leave it out, maybe add an extra grated apple for more flavor!

    1. Did you grate your apples in? Maybe it overcooked a bit? Yes, mine is always very moist. I am glad you loved the taste, but let's figure this dry thing out. Hmmm.....

  17. yes just like your recipe said. grated & chopped fine!!
    I think I know what it might have been. I used half sugar & half Splenda cause I am diabetic!! I have used it before like that in other recipes & they turned out fine. so what do you suggest?

    1. Well I hate to say use all sugar, because of your dietary restrictions but that may be the issue. Maybe, add 1/2 cup of apple juice, I would try that, add some moisture into the batter.
