Fall Apple Cinnamon Loaf Recipe

Apple sauce and chopped Fiji apples pack the punch of apple flavor in this moist loaf cake. A layer of sweet-spicy streusel flavored with cinnamon, nutmeg and brown sugar in the middle and more streusel on top melts-in-your mouth and adds crunch. Bake in a loaf pan for easy-to-cut and-serve portions.
