Apple Crumb Loaf Cake

A quick and easy loaf cake to share with friends, beverage, and good conversation.  Also delicious for a breakfast treat and a take along in the lunch bag.

Crumb Topping:
1 cup flour
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup (1  stick) melted butter
2 tsp. ground cinnamon

2 cups flour
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
2 eggs
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter melted
1/2 cup milk or half-n-half
2 peeled, diced, tart (Granny Smith) apples

Preheat oven to 350, grease a loaf pan.  Put all crumb topping ingredients into a medium bowl and stir until crumbly – set aside.

For cake, sift flour, sugar, baking powder and salt into a large bowl. Then in a separate bowl, beat the eggs just until blended, stir in the butter and milk. Add this to the flour mixture and fold in just until you moisten the dry ingredients. Spoon half the batter into the pan and spread it to cover the bottom, sprinkle the apples then half the crumb topping, then repeat, gently press down. Bake for about 1 hour and 20-30 minutes, or until a knife comes out clean. Cool on wire rack for 10 minutes, then invert onto plate then back onto wire rack to cook completely.
