  • ½ cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ cup milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 cups green apples (diced and peeled)


  • ½ cup flour
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter (cubed and cold)


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a bread ban with non-stick cooking spray or parchment paper. 
  • Use a stand mixer or hand mixer to cream together butter and sugar for bread. Add milk and egg then vanilla. Continue to mix until well combined. 
  • In a separate bowl whisk together flour, salt, and baking powder. Slowly add this to your wet ingredients and mix until well combined. Fold in diced and peeled green apples. 
  • For topping add all ingredients to a mixing bowl. Using clean hands use your fingers to pinch and mix until your topping is crumbly.
  • Bake for 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick can come out clean. 



  • Tip: I used a standard 9"x5" bread pan for this recipe.
  • Overmixing could cause your bread to sink in when baking so be sure to just mix until your ingredients are combined.
  • You can remove and cover with foil then continue to bake to prevent your topping from burning. 


  • How should I store my bread? Wrap your bread in foil or plastic wrap once cooled and leave on the counter for 2 days. To keep longer wrap well once cooked and then place in the refrigerator.
  • Can I freeze this recipe? Yes to freeze this bread allow it to cool once cooked. Wrap it tightly with plastic wrap then place in a freezer-safe airtight container or in a large freezer bag. Keep in the freezer for 1-2 months.
  • Can I use another type of apple? While I believe granny smith to be the best type of apple for this recipe you can use other types. Honeycrisp, gala, or even Fuji would work but could change the taste.
