    1      cup           sugar
    1      teaspoon      baking soda
    1      tablespoon    lemon juice
    2                    eggs
    2      teaspoons     vanilla
    2      cups          flour
      1/4  teaspoon      salt
    1 1/2  cups          apples, peeled -- coarsely chopped

    1      teaspoon      cinnamon
    2      tablespoons   sugar
    2      tablespoons   flour
    2      tablespoons   cold butter or margarine
 
 Cream butter and sugar together.  In a separate bowl, dissolve soda in
 lemon juice.  Mix in eggs and vanilla.  Beat butter mixture and egg
 mixture together.  Add flour and salt.  Do not over mix.  Gently fold in
 apples.  Mix crumb ingredients, cutting in butter to get a coarse crumb
 texture.  Spoon 1/2 of batter into greased stoneware loaf pan.  Sprinkle
 with 1/2 crumb mixture.  Spoon in remaining batter and sprinkle with
 remaining crumb mixture.  Press crumbs gently into surface of batter. 
 Bake at 375 degrees for 1 hour 15 minutes or until a cake tester inserted
 in center comes out clean.  Cool slightly in pan.  Remove bread from pan
 and cool completely on cooling rack.  Yield:  1 loaf.
