There’s nothing quite like the smell of fresh apple fritter bread baking in the oven on a chilly autumn morning. This beautiful apple bread with streusel is begging for you to enjoy a slice. The crispy sugary streusel topping contrasts beautifully with the moist apple bread beneath.
As a delicious fall recipe, this quick apple bread is a cross between a coffee cake and an apple pie. There is a cinnamon sugar and butter streusel layer on top of the bread, and it is baked with chopped apples inside.
