Dutch Apple Bread

Not a super healthy one but with a few modifications such as using Greek yogurt instead of all the oil and whole wheat pastry flour this recipe can be pretty good.

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup buttermilk ( I never have this on hand so is just make it at a ratio of 1tb vinegar to 1 cup milk and let it sit for 5 minutes)
1 cup chopped peeled apple
1/3 cup chopped walnuts
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 tablespoons butter

In a bowl, cream butter and sugar. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Combine flour, baking soda and salt; stir into the creamed mixture alternately with buttermilk. Fold in apple and nuts. Pour into a greased 9-in. x 5-in. loaf pan. For topping, combine the first four ingredients; cut in butter until crumbly. Sprinkle over batter. Bake at 350° for 55-60 minutes or until bread tests done. Cool in pan 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack. Yield: 1 loaf.
