Apple Raisin Bread with An Oatmeal Streusel Topping


My boyfriend likes to eat homemade breads for breakfast in the morning, so I decided to be a nice girlfriend and bake him one today.


Homemade quick breads are not only delicious, but also convenient to have on hand. They are so easy to make and will last the entire week.


This quick bread is loaded with fresh crisp apples and chewy raisins. I decided to top it with a simple mixture of oats, butter, brown sugar and cinnamon. All of the ingredients make this bread sweet and moist with a crunch from the topping.


I will definitely be making this bread again. It's a great recipe that is easy to make and even easier to devour!
