Step by Step Method

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a bread pan with parchment paper or spray with non-stick cooking spray. (I use a 10″ bread pan but this recipe works in a standard 8″ pan as well. The bakes bread will just be taller.)

Step 2

Cream butter and sugar in a mixing bowl. Add in eggs, milk and vanilla and stir to incorporate. Mix in flour, salt and baking powder. Fold in apples and nuts. Transfer mixture to prepared baking pan.


Step 3

Combine all ingredients and mix with a fork or pastry blender until crumbly. Sprinkle over batter in pan.

Step 4

Bake for 55-60 minutes, until toothpick inserted in bread comes out clean. (Internal temperature of bread will be 200 degrees F when fully cooked.)

Step 5

Let cool. Remove from pan and drizzle top with vanilla glaze. Slice and serve.


Step 6

Whisk all ingredients together until smooth. Set aside until ready to use.

NOTE: Store leftovers in an airtight container

10 Stars! Moist and extremely moist and rich. Would be delicious without the glaze, if you didn't want it.

I made this as muffins. People here eat muffins, not sliced sweet bread. IDK why. 400 degrees 20 minutes, 12 muffins. Fabulous.

Ummm....Sorry but I cheated on this one! I was making this for a recipe tag game ....so smack me over the wrist if you wish... but give me credit for admitting to it! Now before you start spitting chips at my cheating ;-) Let me tell the story - I bought the apples to make this recipe and was all ready to make it next day~ but due to unforseen circumstances I was unable to make this. So now I have admitted guilt, this is where the cheating comes in....but before I go on may I say there is a bonus as my admission has a big plus for this recipe ~ My daughter's BF made it! Yep ...not a big cook or baker but he did it....well he did except for the glaze that is.... as he wanted to leave that off. With all that said it was a lovely bread that also was just so perfect in both texture and taste, just wonderful served warm and spread with a hint of butter... BIG YUMMO. If he can do it and it comes out so well..... ANYONE CAN DO IT ... ohhhh let's give him a break - the bloke did it perfectly ..... O.K.! So now for my non cheating version of the recipe.....which would clear my name in any court.... YES ... I DID finally make it after all - but as the apples had already been used, I made this using tinned apple, and WOW- it came out really well, but with a different texture - a little more moist and more like a cake than a bread, but still awfully good, although I did not do the glaze either - I really wish I had as the glaze would have gone really well using tinned apples version. But with all that said - I will be making this again soon - and making sure to use the glaze next time. I also hope to get a photo of this easy to make and yet really tasty Apple Bread.

My sister came over today and I wanted to make something sweet to share with her. She liked it so much she went home with half of it! We loved the glaze and it was perfect on this bread. This will be made many times more!
