This post is sponsored in conjunction with #BrunchWeek. I received product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of the #Brunchweek recipes. All opinions are mine alone. My Mom was a great cook who left a large collection of recipes. I peruse them often. This apple banana streusel bread came from my Mom’s stash but it started out as apple streusel muffins. I had one lone banana I needed to use, not enough for my banana bread recipe, so I thought I’d toss it in here and make it into a loaf.
I’ve never shredded an apple for a recipe before. The Lady Alice apples from Ranier Fruit were nice and juicy and shredded up easily. I just used my cheese shredder on the large holes. I’m convinced the bread was moist due to the juicy apple. They were delicious and I was sad when they were all gone.
The streusel topping adds a sweet crunch to the bread. You could enjoy this with your morning coffee or tea or as a dessert. It would also make a great gift for neighbors during the holidays. I’ve made this bread a second time already because the first loaf didn’t last long in my house. I’m thinking next time I may make it into muffins.
