Applesauce Bread

Bruce and I went apple picking on Friday afternoon and came home with 40 pounds of apples.

Yeah, it's a lot of apples.

But I'm fairly certain I am up to the challenge of being able to put them all to good use within the next little while.

To start off, I made applesauce bread this afternoon.  This bread is incredibly moist, has chunks of fresh apple, a nutty whole wheat aspect, and is super easy to whip up.  In fact the whole thing takes less than 15 minutes to put together, and less than an hour to bake, so you can have fresh, apple-filled bread in an hour and a half or less!


















Applesauce Bread

Ingredients:

1 large apple (peeled and diced in small pieces)
1/2 tsp lemon juice
1 Tbs sugar
1 tsp cinnamon (divided)
1 1/2 c. applesauce
1 1/2 c. whole wheat flour
3/4 c. brown sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/8 tsp allspice
1/4 tsp salt
2 Tbs vegetable oil
2 egg whites
1 1/2 tsp vanilla

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350.

In a small bowl, combine apple chunks, lemon juice, sugar and 1/2 tsp cinnamon.  Set aside.

In a medium bowl, combine applesauce, flour, brown sugar, baking soda, nutmeg, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, allspice, salt, vegetable oil, egg whites, and vanilla.  Mix thoroughly.  Stir the apples into the batter and pour into a greased 9x5 loaf pan.

Bake 55 minutes.

















Enjoy!
