This apple spelt bread is very delicious, moist, and so easy to make. Buttermilk is the secret to the tender, moist texture of this quick bread. There's no sugar in the batter--only in the streusel topping. Back in July, I was one of the 4 lucky winners for a NuStevia giveaway at kristi’s blog, Mother Rimmy's Cooking Light Done Right and received a set of stevia products from NuNaturals to try. For those who ain't fans of artificial sweeteners, replace the stevia powder with 150-200 grams of sugar.
The bread is prepared with spelt bread flour and filled with Granny Smith apples and cinnamon and is topped with a raw brown sugar and almond streusel. Warm from the oven, this cakey bread makes a perfect after-school snack and it freezes well, too.

  • 225 g Spelt bread flour (Dinkel #1050)
  • 1 tsp Baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 2 Small Granny Smith apples, peeled and chopped
  • 100 g Butter, softened
  • 12 packet NuStevia white stevia powder
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 110 ml Buttermilk
  • 40 g Spelt pastry flour (Dinkel #630)
  • 20 g Finely chopped blanched almonds
  • 40 g Raw brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon powder
  • 45 g Butter
  1. Whisk together the spelt bread flour, baking soda and salt. Peel and chop the apple. Cream butter and white stevia powder in a mixing bowl. Beat in eggs and vanilla.
  2. Add the dry ingredients into the creamed mixture alternately with buttermilk. Fold in chopped apples. Divide the thick batter into 7 greased mini rectangular baking cups.
  3. For topping, combine the flour, almonds, raw sugar and cinnamon powder. Cut in butter until crumbly. Sprinkle each with some streusel topping. Bake at 190C/375F for 30 minutes. Cool in pan 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack.

Buttermilk does give bread a very moist texture and I love the flavor of it in breads. I'm sure the apple provides a lot of moisture as well in this awesome streusel bread! My problem with this bread is that I could finish it off in one sitting. :)
