Apple Streusel Bread: Iron Chef Mom

I can't begin to describe how wonderfully amazing this bread is! Not even joking. I actually whipped this up in about 10 minutes after lunch last week while Wesley was napping. The last few honey crisp apples from our apple picking day were sitting on the counter just yelling at me to make something tasty. SOOO happy I chose this out of my many, many, MANY pins with apples. I really liked how the apples were extremely soft in this bread, easy for teething toddlers to gobble up. :)

Apple Streusel Bread
from Kimmy's Kitchen

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups apple, peeled and diced
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons flour
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Beat butter, sugar, and eggs until creamy. Beat in lemon juice and vanilla. In separate bowl, mix together flour, baking soda, and salt. Gradually stir flour mixture into butter mixture until just moistened. Mix in apples until combined. In small food processor (or you could cut in with two knives) add topping ingredients and pulse until crumbly. Spread half of apple batter into a greased loaf pan. 

Sprinkle half of streusel topping over batter. Repeat layers for 2nd half of batter and ending with rest of topping. 

Bake at 350 degrees for 55 - 60 minutes. Let cool completely before slicing.

This post is part of the Iron Chef Mom Challenge, WOO HOO!
