Food for Thought: Applesauce Bread

This is so simple to make and smelled so delicious as it baked!
You probably have all the ingredients already ~ Check it out!








Ingredients
1/2 cup of softened butter
1 large egg
1 1/2 t baking soda
3/4 t nutmeg
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups of flour
1 t ground cinnamon
1/2 t kosher salt
1 1/2 cups of applesauce
1 t of pure vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, first blend together the butter, egg, & sugar.
Then add the flour, baking soda, spices, & salt.
After it starts to from a crumbly dough, pour in the applesauce and mix together.



I used two small loaf pans, pouring mixture evenly into both.
I sprayed my pans with cooking spray first or you could use parchment paper, depending on the dish you choose to bake them in.


Bake at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes.

Ooo the smell soooo good!!

They came out perfectly moist with just the right amount of spice!

I added a little butter ontop for some sweetness, because "everythings better with buddah!"
(I like to say that with my very best Paula Dean impression) :)

    It was super easy & yummy. It stayed moist all week too, which was the best part. I just had to keep myself from eating it all so I was trying to send it to work, with the BF, and Little Miss as much as possible. lol ;)

  13. I ended up having to bake mine for at least an additional 10 mins. Not sure if my oven just isn't heating to its full temp, though.

  15. Im new to baking, so im a lil confused on the rules of flour.. Do we use all purpose flour or self rising.. I know it may seem like a silly question

  19. When you say "small" loaf pans, do you mean "mini"?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Sorry for the confusion - not 'mini' and it's been so long I apologize for not remembering the exact measurements. One batch should fill one normal bread loaf pan - I just divided it amongst two in the photos. Hope that helps!

  21. We went GF the beginning of the year, and this was my first foray into GF baking. I was so pleased to see a pretty simplistic recipe in which I didn't have to go out and spend a lot of money to buy ingredients for this one recipe...as a matter of fact, I had everything on hand! It came together in less than 10 minutes and we were salivating waiting for it to come out of the oven and then cool.

    It was moist and tender and everyone loved it...our 19month old clammored for more!!!

    THANK YOU!!!!
    God's blessings..

  22. Keeley, I saw this recipe on Pinterest, so I am making heart-shaped muffins for my grandson's preschool teachers and staff at his school Thursday, along with other sweet treats. I just have to say that they are so moist and perfect that I had to post them on my blog. I gave you full credit and post your link and original recipe, linking back to your blog. Thanks for sharing such a wonderful recipe! Here's my post: http://www.eyeforthebuyandthepie.com/2013/02/youre-apple-of-my-eye-valentine.html

    I hope it's okay to use your recipe-please let me know if you okay this, and if not, I'll be happy to remove it. Thanks again!

  23. Just made this with the help of my two-year-old (she's an excellent pour-er), it's in the oven now. Hopefully putting it all in one loaf pan will be okay, we just had the one. Can't wait to see how it turns out!

    1. OH MY, good catch! I usually add mine with the applesauce. Thanks!!

  25. Do you bake it any longer for full size loaf pan?

    ReplyDelete
  26. I just saw your bread picture and recipe on FB. Thanks to your name on the picture, I was able to track down your original post to pin. I have canned 39 quarts of applesauce so far this fall. So I'll have plenty of applesauce to make this with. lol

  27. No baking powder? Strange, I thought I had forgotten it.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Love this, it was so yummy! I didn't have small pans, so I just did one regular sized bread pan. I baked it for 60min and it turned out great!

  29. I made this tonight (I was unexpectedly out of nutmeg so I substituted with Pumpkin pie spice) and my almost 14 yr old son said "Please make more things like this!" It was delectable.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Can i use unsweetened applesauce?

    ReplyDelete
  31. I made this today and my roommates are already asking me to make it again! It's delicious! I didn't add nutmeg and substituted unsweetened applesauce and it came out great! I just featured it on my blog, http://bigcitydreamsbyabby.blogspot.com/2013/11/applesauce-bread.html so I'd love if you checked it out! Thanks so much for the recipe!
