Default Apple Streusel Yeast Bread....need some advice.

I don't know if any of you have ever tried Oregon Trail Apple Danish Bread from Sam's Club or not but it is some absolutely wonderful bread.

I've been on a quest to make my own version of this wonderful bread. I think I've read every apple bread and apple danish recipe on the internet and combined the things that I liked from a variety of recipes. I think I've pretty much got the bread itself down. It has a wonderful apple taste, not too dense and not too sweet.

The bread made 2 loaves:

1 1/3 cups of apple juice
1/2 cup of applesauce
3 Tablespoons butter, softened
4 to 5 cups bread flour
1/3 cup of dry milk
1/2 Tablespoon Salt
1 Tablespoon Cinnamon
1/2 cup of light brown sugar, packed
2 1/4 teaspoons yeast
2 Tablespoons Vital Wheat Gluten
1 large granny smith apple, finely diced

My problem arises with the streusel topping, some of it fell of when the bread rose in the oven and most of the rest of it fell off when I cut into it.

I made the dough in the bread machine. I shaped it, put the topping on and let it rise a second time before baking. Maybe I should have pressed the topping into the bread dough before I let it rise a second time?

The topping I used:
1/2 cup of flour
1/4 cup of packed light brown sugar
1/2 Tablespoon Cinnamon
6 Tablespoons of softened butter
Topped with a few shaved almonds

Does anyone have any idea as to a good streusel topping recipe that will stick to the bread better?

Once I get the perfect topping for this bread, I think it will be amazing!
