Apple Pie Bread

Servings 10

Difficulty Easy

½ cups Butter Or Margarine (butter Is Better)
½ cups Brown Sugar
½ cups Granulated Sugar
¼ cups Sour Milk, Cream, Buttermilk (whatever)
2 teaspoons Baking Powder
2 whole Eggs
1 teaspoon Vanilla (I Use A Bourbon Based Vanilla)
2 cups Flour
½ teaspoons Sea Salt
2 cups Shredded Apples (leave The Peel On; Its Pretty)
1 cup Pecans Or Walnuts, Chopped Fine
For The Topping
2 Tablespoons Butter
3 Tablespoons Flour
¼ cups Brown Sugar
½ cups Walnuts Or Pecans, Chopped
Preparation Instructions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray loaf pan with Crisco or Pam (whatever you have works).
In a large bowl, beat butter (1/2 cup) until fluffy; add sugar and mix well. Then add milk and baking powder, again mixing well. Add eggs and vanilla; you guessed it, mixing well after this addition too. Add the flour and salt and beat well. Stir in apples and nuts. Spoon batter into pan and spread evenly.
Then make the topping - combine butter (2 tablespoons), flour (3 tablespoons) and brown sugar (1/4 cup) and the rest of the nuts, mixing well until crumbly. Then sprinkle evenly over the top of the batter.
Put in oven, for 1 hour or until done. Cool on wire rack for 10 minutes or so and then remove from the pan. Cool completely, wrap and store overnight BEFORE slicing. (It’s seriously hard to wait, but does make a difference on the texture. Trust me!)
You can add cranberries (1/2 to 3/4 c), or raisins (1/2 to 3/4 c) and it has been divine!. I have also put a thin glaze on top of it

I think that I am going to make this bread this week. I might make it tomorrow. It sounds like something my family would love.

I made this and my family loved it. The hardest part was waiting for the next day.

My kids gave it 3 thumbs up.
