This recipe is our families take on other recipes I’ve seen floating around. We are big Dutch apple pie fans and thought a crumble topping would take this to another level and oh man, Did it ever! It is simple, fun, and irresistible (and tastes amazing along side a cup of coffee)! Definitely a new family favorite.I found these cute little mini loaf pans at Lifeway (http://m.lifeway.com/Product/give-thanks-mini-loaf-pan-P006169314) and absolutely love them! I’m thinking of using these as Christmas gifts for friends and family and include one of our favorite breads as well as the recipe for them to make for themselves. It would be a unique and inexpensive gift that I’m sure everyone would appreciate!
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2/3 cup white sugar
1/2 cup butter softened
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup milk
2 apples (any kind) peeled and chopped, then mixed with 2 Tablespoons granulated sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon butter-melted
Mix together brown sugar, flour and cinnamon in a small bowl. Cut in 1 tablespoon melted butter. Mixture will be somewhat clumpy.
Old fashioned glaze:
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2-3 Tablespoons milk or cream (depending on desired thickness)
Preheat Oven to 350 degrees (about 176 Celsius), grease a 9X5 loaf pan or 3 mini loaf pans.
Mix brown sugar and cinnamon in a bowl and set aside.
In another medium sized bowl, beat white sugar and butter until smooth and creamy.
Beat in eggs, one at a time, until blended in. Add in vanilla extract.
Combine flour and baking soda and then add into creamed butter mixture until well blended. Then add in milk and stir until smooth.
Pour some of your batter into prepared pan(s) (half of the batter for 9X5 pan or about 1/3 full in your mini loaf pans) add half of the apples and half of the brown sugar/cinnamon mixture-lightly pat the apples in and swirl brown sugar mixture through apples using a knife.
Pour remaining batter in and add remaining apples and brown sugar mixture- repeating patting and swirling.
Bake in a preheated oven for about 30 minutes then add your crumble topping and continue to bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Make your old fashioned glaze by combining powdered sugar and cream until smooth
Let your bread cool for about 20 minutes the drizzle with glaze.
Serve and enjoy!
