Apple Pie Bread

   This recipe is from Better Homes & Gardens. It is called a bread,but it is more like a cake.Filled with apple deliciousness,it is sure to please your family.

1 stick of butter,softened
1/4 c. buttermilk
1 c. sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. vanilla
2 c. flour
1/2 tsp. salt
4 medium apples(gala,granny smith),peeled & shredded
1 c. chopped walnuts or pecans

Streusel Topping:
1/4 c. brown sugar
3 tbsp. flour
2 tbsp. butter
1/3 c. chopped walnuts or pecans
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
  Mix all of the streusel ingredients together in a bowl until it resembles a soft paste.Use to sprinkle on top of the cake batter before baking.

   In the bowl of your mixer,beat the butter and sugar.Add the buttermilk,baking powder,vanilla,eggs and salt.Add the flour.Mix until blended.Add the nuts and mix just until the nuts are incorporated.
   Pour into a greased 9x5x3 loaf pan.Pour batter into the pan.Sprinkle streusel topping on top.Bake at 350 degrees  for 60-65 minutes,or until a knife comes out clean after being inserted in the middle of the cake.
   Let cool slightly,then remove from pan.The recipe calls for wrapping the cake in plastic overnight,before slicing and enjoying,BUT I say cut into this baby and enjoy immediately with a cold glass of milk!
