Apple Streusel Apple Bread

*Update from 8/30/16* This apple bread is still one of my absolute favorite all-time recipes here on Mostly Homemade Mom! I originally posted this recipe almost 4 years ago and my family is still enjoying this recipe today. I've made this bread several times over the years for company and visitors to my house, as well as various church potlucks and bake sales. I've updated the photos in this post for easy pinning and sharing. Let me know how much you enjoy this bread, I know you will! -Kelly

Apple Streusel Apple Bread Recipe

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. :)
