Caramel Apple Bread

This bread is very good but I found that it wouldn't come out of the pan because of all the good caramel.  I think I will use paper holders next time.
Looks like a lot of ingredients but it is so worth it.
Start with two sticks of butter that are room temperature.  To that add 1/2 c sugar.
Cream butter and sugar
Add 1 teaspoon of baking soda to 1 Tablespoon of lemon or lime juice.  This will cause a chemical reaction.  That is normal do not be alarmed.  It's actually fun to watch.
The reaction is starting.
Get all the baking soda dissolved.
Then add to the sugar mixture.
Next add two eggs.
2 teaspoons of vanilla
Mix well.
Add 2 cups of plain flour
Mix well and add 1/4 teaspoon of salt
Then add 2 cups of chopped apples.  These are Golden Delicious.  You will need to add those by hand.
Now for the topping.  Little brown sugar, butter, flour and cinnamon
4Tablespoon of flour
4 Tablespoon of brown sugar
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
Toss that around a little and break up the brown sugar clumps.
Slice up 4 Tablespoons of cold butter.
Use a pastry cutter or fork to mix the butter into the rest of the ingredients.  There will be coarse crumbs.
If you are using small pans it will make 3.  I think it only makes one large loaf.  Put a layer of dough in the bottom of the pans that have been sprayed.
Sprinkle with some of the crumb topping.
Then pour some of the caramel topping on top.
Top with more dough.
Add more topping and caramel. Put in a preheated 375 oven for about 30 minutes for the small loaves.  60 minutes for a large loaf.
Put a cookie sheet under the loaves because they will spill over.  They smell so good baking.  Reminds me of the cinnamon nuts that you can get at the mall.
I couldn't get mine to cut into pieces at least on the first piece.  But it was good so it didn't matter what it looks like.
