Maple Apple Crumb Loaf

Sometimes, a picture is worth a thousand words... or maybe I am just over-tired and not inspired to write much. In any case, go ahead. Bake. This. Loaf. Now. You're welcome!

Makes 1 loaf

For the batter:
  • 1 ½ cup white whole wheat flour = 180 g de farine
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder = 1 cuillère à café de levure
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda = 1 cuillère à café de bicarbonate de soude
  • Dash nutmeg = une pincée de noix de muscade râpée
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon = 2 cuillères à café de cannelle en poudre
  • 4 tablespoons butter, softened = 60 g de beurre, ramolli
  • 2 tablespoons applesauce = 2 cuillères à soupe de compote de pommes
  • ½ cup maple syrup = 120 ml de sirop d'érable
  • 1 egg = 1 oeuf
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract = 1 cuillère à café d'extrait de vanille
  • ⅓ cup buttermilk = 80 ml de lait ribot
  • 1 large Granny Smith apple, peeled and diced = 1 grosse pomme verte, épluchée et coupée en petits dés

For the topping:
  • ⅓ cup flour = 40 g de farine
  • 3 tablespoons cold butter, diced = 40 g de beurre, bien froid, coupé en petits dés
  • ⅓ cup brown sugar (packed) = 65 g de cassonade
 Preheat oven to 350°F / 180° C.

Sift dry ingredients (flour through cinnamon) together. In a separate bowl, combine remaining ingredients, except the apple. Add the dry ingredients to the wet in two batches and mix until just combined. Fold in the apple. Pour batter into a 9 x 5-inch greased loaf pan.
Mix the topping ingredients together (with your fingers or a pastry cutter). Sprinkle mixture and press gently into the batter. Bake for 50-55 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool slightly on a serving platter. Enjoy!
