Recipe: Apple Streusel Bread

I’m a huge fan of apples year around, but everyone knows fall is peak apple season and that means the more apple recipes the better! I’m happy to take advantage of this in every form possible: homemade applesauce, apple cider, stewed apples over a rosemary pork loin (yum!) and today’s apple streusel bread. This bread is full of chunky apples making it super moist and …nutritious, right? I wish!

Apple Streusel Bread


I love recipes that are made up of ingredients I already have on hand. This is definitely one of those. I made this mid-morning and had some straight of the oven. It was undoubtedly delicious. Then, I had some later in the evening (of course) and it was even BETTER!

Apple Streusel Bread


2 eggs
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups of sugar
2 cups white baking flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tbsp. cinnamon
3 medium apples, peeled and chopped (approx 3 cups)

Streusel topping

1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup sugar
4 tbsp chilled butter
1 tsp cinnamon


Baking ingredients


Baking bread

Apple Streusel Bread


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Combine eggs, oil and sugar and mix. Add dry ingredients and mix until combined. Stir in chopped apples. The batter will be thick and loaded with apples. Pour into well greased loaf pan and set aside

For the streusel topping, combine all the dry ingredients. Add chilled, diced butter to the dry ingredients and combine. It’s best to use your hands to do this so you can form clumps.

Pour your streusel topping over your batter.

Cook for 50-55 minutes at 350 degrees. You may need to cover it half way through so the top doesn’t brown too much. It really depends on your oven.

Enjoy this fall inspired treat with your family and friends!
