Applesauce Bread

A neighbor gave us a bunch of apples this fall and we still have 2 boxes of them in our basement. They are a red variety and have lost some of their crispness, but still good for baking. I've been trying to come up with creative uses for the apples so this year we made some applesauce bread to give to some of our neighbors for Christmas. It actually tasted like more of a cake (it was quite sweet), but very good. I think if I was to make it again I would probably experiment with eliminating some of the sugar.

Here's the recipe:

Applesauce Bread

1 cup wonder flour
2 cups whole wheat flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon allspice
2 sticks butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1 cup granulated sugar, packed
1 egg
2 cups chunky applesauce
1 cup coarsely chopped pecans (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray 2 bread pans with nonstick spray.

Combine dry ingredients. Combine butter and both sugars in a separate bowl. Beat in egg then stir in applesauce. Stir in flour mixture until it is fully incorporated. Fold in pecans.

Pour into bread pans and bake 60 to 70 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean from center.
