Servings: 2 loaves

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 eggs lightly beaten
  • 1 cup pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 cups apples peeled and chopped (Honeycrisp and Fuji apples work best - I used 2 medium apples)

CINNAMON SUGAR STREUSEL TOPPING:

  • 2 Tbsp. flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 4 Tbsp butter cold

Instructions

  • Mix the flour, sugar, pumpkin pie spice, salt and baking soda in a mixing bowl and set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, mix the eggs, pumpkin and oil until well blended.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry ones and mix just until combined. Gently fold in the chopped apples.
  • Divide the batter in half and then pour the batter into two bread pans.
  • Sprinkle the streusel topping mixture over the batter and then bake at 350° for 55-60 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the middle of the bread comes out clean. Let cool in the bread pans for about 20-30 minutes before removing from pans. Finish cooling on wire racks.

STREUSEL TOPPING:

  • Mix the flour, cinnamon and sugar together and then cut in the butter until mixture is crumbly.  (I cut the butter in with a knife and fork, and then used the back of the fork to smash everything together and mix it better. You can also use a pastry cutter like this one if you've got it!)

Notes

If you want to make Apple Pumpkin muffins instead of bread, the recipe is the same. Just divide the batter into 24 regular sized muffin cups and bake at 350° for 35-40 minutes.
