Applesauce Bread

Hi everyone!  So fall is just days away from us and I thought its time for fall recipes.  Now I have made this recipe before and my family loved it, so much so that I took a picture.  I knew I had to make it again, so I can add more pictures for you all to enjoy.  This is by far one of the quickest recipes out there.  I used homemade applesauce but you can use store bought as well.  So let's get on with this recipe!


2 1/2 cups of flour
2 tablespoons of Cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon or less of ginger
1/4 teaspoon of all spice
A pinch of salt just to bring out the sweetness
1 tablespoon of baking powder
1 Egg
1 1/2 cups of applesauce
1 cup of brown sugar
2/3 cup of milk
2 tablespoons of butter melted
1 teaspoon of vanilla


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.  Mix all your dry ingredients like the flour, spices, salt  and baking powder in a medium sized mixing bowl.  In a different bowl mix all your wet ingredients, this includes sugar as well.  So add in your eggs, milk, butter, vanilla, brown sugar, and applesauce.  Form a small well in the center of your bowl that has the dry mix.  Now just dump in the wet ingredients into the dry and mix it up.  Spray a bread pan with non stick cooking spray. Once the batter is mixed up and all the flour is incorporated, spoon the mixture into the bread pan.  Bake for about 50-60 minutes depending on your oven.  To tell if the bread is done, just stick a toothpick or the tip of a small knife in the center of the bread.  If the knife or toothpick comes out clean with no batter on it, then its done.  Let the bread cool for about 5-10 minutes before cutting.  

Its that simple and your house will smell amazing!  Enjoy and as always Live, Laugh and Love..  Heather
