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 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.
