Applesauce Nut Bread

This applesauce bread is a family favorite. The streusel-like topping adds an extra bit of sweetness. I prefer using a chunky applesauce so that the bread has small chunks of apple in it, but regular applesauce works well too.

1 cup sugar
1 cup applesauce
1/3 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
3 tablespoons milk
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
3/4 cup chopped walnuts

Topping
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup chopped walnuts

Combine ingredients and turn into greased baking pan. Combine topping ingredients and spread evenly over batter. Bake in 350 degree oven for 1 hour. Cap loosely with foil after first 30 minutes of baking.
