Best of both worlds, apple pie and bread, all in one. The bread is super soft, moist and melts in your mouth. It is perfect for Christmas, its perfect for fall. And then you have the taste of apple pie in bread – which makes it totally legal to eat pie for breakfast.

There are just so many things I like about this recipe. For one, it’s a one bowl recipe. All you have to do is keep the ingredients ready and keep dumping them into a bowl. No need to mix the flour and baking powder separately or anything. Easy, right? The other thing I love is that the apples are grated so you can taste them in almost every single bite.
I did make a few changes to the original recipe from Better Homes and Gardens. The recipe did not call for any spices to be added, I added a teaspoon of my homemade apple pie spice mix in the bread and topping. For the streusel topping I added dark brown sugar that caramelized as the bread baked and formed a nice, slightly crunchy, caramel-y streusel layer. I omitted the nuts from the streusel and added tiny currants to the topping as well as the bread. And the final addition was my drizzle – an attempt to substitute the lattice topping with a cream cheese drizzle. A simple concoction of cream cheese, sugar and milk.
