@coffee drinker, I'll reply if you don't mind since I have other recipes that have a crumble topping. Usually, you would use cold butter and mix it in with the other ingredients. That's what I did with this one, but honestly, I didn't think it really needed the topping since the bread has such a great flavor on its own. But - it did add an element of sweetness and crunch! The bread recipe is really good.

@coffee drinker....So glad to hear you made this and more important that you liked it, Sorry about the mishap when baking it. You just use butter without melting it. When baking with buter or any cold item, I make sure it is at room temp. hope that helps.

@LilBitMissty   Thank you so very much for writing the recipe for me.  When I mentioned Cantaloupe Bread my husband said, "cantaloupe, in a bread." I will definitely make it later this year when the melon is in season.  Right now they would taste like cardboard (IMO).  And when I do, I will post back to you via this board.  Thank you, again.
