Ingredients
  

For the Bread

  • 3 cups apples diced
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup unsweetened applesauce or vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

For the Streusel

  • 5 tbsp softened butter salted
  • 4 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsp cinnamon

Instructions
 

To make the bread

  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F and lightly spray 9x5 loaf pans with non-stick spray. Set aside.
  • Peel your apples and dice into small pieces.
  • In a medium bowl, add the flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda, and salt and whisk together.
  • In another large bowl, add the applesauce (or vegetable oil), eggs, sugars, and vanilla and mix with a whisk until fully combined.
  • Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients in batches (three parts) and stir with a spatula until fully combined. The batter will be very thick.
  • Stir in diced apples.
  • Pour half of the batter into each prepared loaf pan - try to keep the amounts even.

To make the streusel

  • In a small bowl, add the softened butter, cinnamon, and sugar and mix together with a fork. Drop the streusel mixture onto the tops of the batter and lightly swirl.
  • Bake for 1 hour then check on your loaves. Insert a toothpick into the center - if it comes out clean, with moist crumbs, your bread is done.
  • Let cool in the pan for about 10 minutes, then lightly run a knife around the edges to loosen. Flip onto a plate, slice and enjoy.
