Apple butter is one of my favorite fall treats. There are so many things that it can be used in. When I stumbled upon a Caramel Apple Butter in one of my favorite kitchen supply stores, I knew I would have to make something wonderful with it! This recipe of my own creation is officially a fall favorite in my house! ***update -- day 3 of this bread... it's even better today than day 1!! So VERY good!!

1
Lightly coat a 9x5 loaf pan with nonstick spray. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F for glass loaf pan or 350 degrees F for metal loaf pan.
2
In a large bowl, cream together butter, sugar and brown sugar. Stir in yogurt and baking powder until well combined. Add eggs and vanilla; combine well.
3
In a separate small bowl, combine flour, pumpkin pie spice, salt and nuts; fold into creamed batter until combined- do not over mix!
4
Spoon half of mixture into prepared pan. Spread caramel apple butter over batter in pan, then spread remaining batter over apple butter. If desired, run a knife through batter to give a swirled appearance but it is not necessary.

In a small bowl, combine together ingredients for streusel topping using a fork or your fingers until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle evenly over batter in pan.
