apple streusel loaf

remember how i LOVE the Domestic Art cookbooks that i talk about sometimes? well, the 3rd and final book was just released, and just in the nick of time for my apple harvest. she has an apple streusel bread that i thought was pretty tasty with my apples. if you're looking for a way to use up apples, then you need to give this a try.

apple streusel loaf

2 c. flour 2 c. chopped, peeled apples
1 tbsp. baking powder 1/2 tsp. lemon zest
1/2 tsp. salt 1/2 c. milk
1/2 c. plus 2 tbsp. sugar 1 egg
1/2 c. butter 1/2 tsp. cinnamon

preheat the oven to 350. in a large bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, salt, and 1/2 cup sugar. cut in the butter until coarse crumbs form. reserve 1/2 cup of this mixture. stir in apples and lemon zest into the remaining flour-butter mixture. in a small bowl mix the milk and egg until well blended. add to the apple mixture and stir just until moistened. pour batter into a greased loaf pan. in a small bowl, stir the reserved flour-butter mixture, cinnamon and the remaining 2 tbsp. sugar together. sprinkle over batter. press down lightly. bake 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. cool in pan 10 minutes before slicing and serving.

And this looks delish...I think I'll try it after a Pecan-topped Pumpkin Bread recipe I found in Cooking Light Magazine. Yumm-o.
