This recipe tastes like apple pie, but in bread form! The crunchy and crispy streusel on the outside equates to the pie crust while the soft and almost gooey inside equates to that of the inside of a pie. The apples are slow cooked to perfection, not too much like an apple, but not too much like baby food either. It is the perfect medium and this recipe is definitely one where you’ll find yourself finishing half of it in one sitting.
For the Bread
2 Cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
½ cup granulated sugar
3 eggs, room temperature, whisked heavily
