  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

Topping

  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup flour

  5. Fold in the apples and pour into the prepared loaf pan.
  6. To make the topping, combine 2 tablespoons of melted butter with 1/2 cup each of flour and brown sugar. Mix with a fork until crumbly and pour evenly over the top of the batter.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven for 55 minutes, checking for doneness starting at 45 minutes by inserting a toothpick into the center of the bread.
  8. Cut into slices and serve warm.
