Apple Pie Bread Recipe

This bread (adapted from Baked by Rachel) is, well, is it bread or dessert? I can’t decide. :) I’m just kidding, of course, but seriously… this bread is a vision of delectability! It is flavorful, moist, soft, has an excellent, not-gooey but gooey-tasting filling, and a crumb topping that bakes on to make a sort of crumbly, sweet shell. Goodness in a pan. I’m kind of not my talkative (or… writative, in this case) self today, so please excuse the winky little paragraph. Of course, you’re probably so tired of reading my essays about my baking adventures. :) But really, it is very good bread!

Apple Pie Bread Recipe:

For the Bread:

1 3/4 cup flour

2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/4 tsp. salt

1 tbsp. apple pie spice

1 tbps. cinnamon

1 egg

1/3 cup vegetable oil

1/3 cup applesauce

3/4 cup brown sugar

1 1/2 cups shredded apples

1 cup chopped apples

For the Filling:

1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese, warm

1 egg

1/4 cup powdered sugar

1 tsp. vanilla

For the Crumb Topping:

2 tbsp. flour

4 tbsp. sugar

1/2 tsp. apple pie spice

2 tbsp. butter, cold

Directions:

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease an 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 loaf pan.

2. To make the bread, mix the egg, vegetable oil, applesauce, and brown sugar together in a large mixing bowl. Add the shredded and chopped apples. Add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and apple pie spice to the applebattermixture. Stir until well incorporated. Set aside.

3. For the filling, mix all the ingredients in a small bowl and set aside. For the crumb topping, mix the flour, sugar, and apple pie spice in a small bowl. Cut in the cold butter and mix with a pastry cutter until the mixture resembles course, pea-sized crumbs.

4. To assemble the loaf, pour just enough of the bread batter into the pan to coat the bottom (i should be about half of the batter) then pour all of the cream cheese mixture on top of it. Pour the remaining bread batter over the cream cheese, making sure that the batter seals the edges and you cannot see any white if you look at the batter directly from above. Next evenly pour all of the crumb topping over the batter.

5. Bake for 50-55 minutes or until a knife inserted comes out clean. Let the loaf cool in the pan until you can flip it into your hands which you can use, in turn, to flip the loaf onto a platter crumb-side up. :)

6. Enjoy the any-meal dessert at anytime!
