Applesauce Bread

It was my original intention to make applesauce muffins this week to use up some homemade applesauce that I had in the fridge.  However, the temperature has been record breaking this week and I didn't want to turn on the oven.  Today, I finally figured out a way around that (will discuss in a future post), but I couldn't make muffins-the pan wouldn't fit.  So today I made mini loaves of applesauce bread.

1 1/2 cups applesauce
2/3 cup of sugar (can cut this back to 1/2 cup, but my applesauce was unsweetened, so I bumped it up a bit)
1 egg
1/4 cup melted butter
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 tsp. cinnamon
1 1/2 cups whole white wheat flour (any flour will do)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional-I didn't use any this time because I forgot.)

Mix wet ingredients together.  Add dry ingredients.  Stir until just combined, overstirring will result in a tougher bread.  If using nuts, fold those in.  Fill 3 mini loaf pans half full (or muffin cups 3/4 full-bake 10 minutes, or you could even use an 8" x 8" pan if you wanted more of a breakfast cake-bake probably close to 35-40 minutes).  I baked the loaf pans 30-35 minutes.  I checked mine at 30 and they weren't quite done.  It took 33 minutes for me, but I was using an alternative baking implement, so that might have made a difference.

  1. Haha I bet I know exactly what you did because I have done that before! I actually went weeks without a stove or oven before so I got lots of use out of that appliance (if it is what I think it is)!
