Apple Pie Bread with Streusel Topping
Start your day with a slice of this delicious Apple Pie Bread with Streusel Topping recipe. You’ll notice underneath that crumbly cinnamon streusel topping lies a beautifully textured moist and fluffy almost like pound cake textured apple bread. You’ll fall in love with how delicately it is infused with apple flavor and the warm spices that are used in apple pies. When it comes to apple treats, it always seems like cooked apples are something that grandma would highly recommend or approve. Gooey baked apples are most definitely a traditional way of incorporating them in desserts. This recipe is also a great make-ahead treat that freezes well and delightful for brunch, picnic, potluck or just about any occasion. If you want you can add pecans to this bread instead of just walnuts to increase the flavor a bit more. Whether you eat this bread on its own or served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, it will be a great treat for everyone. This recipe is excellent if you want to add other fruits like mixed berries along with apple pieces.
Apples are loaded with nutrients that are very high in vitamin B6, and C. They are also high in fiber and contain no saturated fats or cholesterol. With so many health benefits that come from the nutrition in apples, it is hard not to bake with them. When apples are in the season, it is a great excuse to make more quick and easy apple desserts so that you can take advantage of the nutrition in apples. When you make dessert recipes with apples, it’s always a good idea to use the whole apple as opposed to using canned apples that have unwanted preservatives in them. You’ll notice the taste when you use fresh apples from the canned ones. Plus, there is something very satisfying about peeling the apples and doing the prep work with all the sweet anticipation of making the best apple bread recipe. Of course, the extra work of peeling is not fun, but it is healthy compared to using canned apples any day. If you don't have a lot of time on hand, you can, of course, go ahead and use the canned apples from your local store.
This recipe also makes great cupcakes or healthy breakfast muffins. You can add a layer of peanut butter to the muffins if you want. If you’re feeling a bit more daring, you can introduce new flavors into this recipe like a dash of orange or lemon zest to give it a sweet citrus touch of flavour. Along with cinnamon, you could also use nutmeg or pumpkin pie spice to the batter to enhance the depth in the cake. Remember to use fresh spices for achieving the optimum depth of taste in the bread. Do not use if your spices have been sitting on your shelf for a long time because spices tend to lose their aroma if unused over a period. It makes baking this apple bread worth every penny when you buy spices that are fresh and not stale.
