German Apple Bread


This Apple Loaf has been a fantastic hit served warm with soft butter and a hot beverage...



1/2 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. baking soda
2 Tbs. sour milk
2 cups flour
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. cinnamon
2 cups apples, peeled and chopped


2 Tbs. butter (cold)
2 Tbs. flour
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 Tbs. sugar


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine and mix all BREAD ingredients in a large bowl. Mixture will be thick when poured into a greased 9x5 bread loaf pan. Mix TOPPING ingredients in a small bowl until it has a well mixed crumbly texture. Sprinkle TOPPING on bread before baking.

Bake until bread passes the scientific method of using a toothpick to test if done, or approximately one hour. Serve while warm and enjoy this wonderful treat with a hot coffee or tea!
