This is a nice “anytime” loaf bread, which works equally well for breakfast, desert, or snacking. Also, easy to make – bonus!
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, and fully grease and flour a loaf pan.
Beat 2/3 cup sugar, 1/2 cup soft butter, 2 large eggs, ½ cup milk, and 1 tablespoon vanilla together. Mix in 1 and 1/2 cups flour, 1 and 3/4 teaspoons baking powder, and1 teaspoon cinnamon. Stir in 1 peeled and small-diced apple, and set aside.
Streusel time! Mix 3 tablespoons melted butter, 1/2 cup flour, 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons brown sugar, and 1 teaspoon cinnamon together, to crumble consistency. Press half the streusel onto the bottom of the pan. Pour in 1/3 of the batter. Sprinkle the rest of streusel over the batter, and pour in the rest of it. (This streusel recipe and technique pretty much works for any cake or loaf – I use it frequently.)
Bake for 30-40 minutes, plus/minus your oven’s eccentricities, until a wooden skewer comes out clean. Cool for 15 minutes and invert onto serving plate.
