1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup low G.I sugar
1/2 cup lightly packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1/4 cup buttermilk
1 1/2 tspn vanilla
1/4 cup buttermilk
2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tspn salt
2 tspn mixed spice
1/2 cup dried cranberries
2 cups shredded peeled apple (2-3 large apples)
3/4 cup chopped walnuts

For the streusel topping:
1/4 cup lightly packed brown sugar
3 tbspns all purpose flour
1/4 tspn mixed spice
2 tbspns unsalted butter
1/3 cup chopped walnuts
1. Preheat oven to 180 c. Spray a 9x5x3-inch loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray, set aside
2. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, or in a large bowl with an electric mixer, beat the butter on medium-high speed for about 30 seconds. Add in sugars and mix until well combined. Add buttermilk and baking powder, beat until combined. Add eggs and vanilla, beat until thoroughly incorporated. In a medium bowl, combine flour, apple pie, spice and salt, whisk until combined. Slowly add the flour mixture to the bowl and mix on low speed until just incorporated. Fold in apples, walnuts and cranberries.
3. Spoon batter into prepared pan; spread evenly. Prepare the streusal topping.
4. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, flour and mixed spice. Rub in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in walnuts and spoon streusal topping over the batter, pressing them gently into the batter.
5. Bake for 60-65 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted near the centre comes out clean.
6. Cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 min. Remove from pan. Cool completely and store overnight before slicing.
Depending on the type of apples you use, you may end up with a great deal of liquid after grating the apples. Lightly squeeze the apples to release any excess juice before adding them to the batter. You can also try adding some raisins to this bread.
Waiting overnight before cutting this bread helps all the flavours to meld together for a tastier bread. But if you cannot wait have a slice with a cup of coffee, tea or your favourite herbal brew.
