Best Apple Bread

Best apple bread | I have a few favorite quick breads and this apple bread is one of them.  This bread has great flavor, texture and is very moist. I adapted the recipe from an old Pampered Chef recipe. I’ve changed the original recipe up by adding more streusel and lemon juice, I’m not sure what the lemon juice does in this recipe, it’s just good. The unique thing about this bread is that the streusel topping is in the middle of the bread, it’s like a little surprise when you cut into it. I usually make this bread at Christmas time and give it away as gifts.

Best Apple Bread

1 cup butter melted
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1 T. vanilla
4 cups flour
2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
4 med. granny smith apples
3 T. lemon juice

6 T. flour
3 T. butter
6 T. sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon
Step 1: Peel, and core apples
Step 2: chop apples
Step 3: In a large bowl cream together melted butter,sugar,eggs vanilla and lemon juice.  Add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and blend together.
Step 4: Add apples to the batter and stir
Step 5: Make streusel by combining all ingredients and stirring well, streusel will clump together.
Step 6: Spray 2 bread pans with cooking spray and scoop out some of the bread batter to the pans. Divide streusel topping in half and crumble with fingers over each bread pan. Scoop the rest of the bread mixture into each pan trying to keep the portions equal.
Step 7: Bake at 325 degrees for 70 minutes or until tooth pick inserted into the middle comes out clean.
Makes 2 loaves

Looks delish-I'd love to try making this bread!!! What size loaf pans did you use to bake these in?

8 Suzanne December 6, 2010 at 3:34 am

Dori, I used 9X5 in loaf pans. Hope it turns out wonderful for you.

Hi Suzanne!

I LOVE this Apple bread every time I make it and I was wondering if I could switch the apples for pears. I have several ripe pears that I need to use up. What do you think?


14 Suzanne October 13, 2011 at 7:50 am

Thanks Megan so glad you love it too. You could try using the pears but just remember the water or juice content of pears is higher than granny smith apples so the texture may be different and take longer to cook. Let me know if you do try it.

your streusel topping looked so dark did you use brown sugar?

16 Suzanne October 12, 2012 at 1:19 pm

The cinnamon makes it dark in color.

I made only a couple changes but it turned out SO well. I cute the recipe in half – still baked it at 325 but for only 55min. ALSO instead of putting the streusel in the middle I put it on top… when it came out of the over it looked amazing!!

18 Suzanne October 24, 2012 at 11:37 am

Great Johanna, I’m sure the changes were just as good as the original recipe. I like the streusel in the middle because it’s a surprise you aren’t expecting and it doesn’t fall off the top when you cut into the bread. But I have no doubt on top would be really good.
