Spiced Applesauce Bread

My Little Man and I made this applesauce bread for our trip to Disney.  It became our breakfast for the car ride down, and although I thought everyone would want a cereal bar or some fruit to go with it, but they didn't.  A second slice of this hearty bread kept everyone happy for hours. It's sweet and smooth with a bit of crunch from the granola on top, and with lots of applesauce instead of fats, it's pretty good for you, too.

Here's how to make it:

In a large bowl, mix together until smooth:
1 1/2 c. applesauce
1/4 c. vegetable oil
1/2 c. brown sugar
2 eggs
3 T. milk

In a small bowl, sift the dry ingredients together:
2 c. whole wheat flour
1 t. baking soda
1/2 t. baking powder
1 t. cinnamon
1/4 t. ground allspice
1/4 t. salt

Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ones until just moistened.  Then stir in 1/2 c. of almonds.

Pour batter into a greased loaf pan.  Top with a handful of granola and bake at 350 for about 1 hour.

After removing from the oven, let cool on a wire rack for about 10 minutes.  Gently loosen the edges with a butterknife and slide the bread from the pan.  Cover with a dish cloth and let cool completely before wrapping.

This bread says 'fall' to me.  What are your favorite autumn foods?


  1. Can I use all purpose flour instead of wheat flour?

  2. I just made this. Only change was that I used butter instead of oil and added a mix of walnuts and almonds. Very good, thanks !

  3. I made this yummy bread yesterday. It was so good! Mine only took 50 minutes to bake. Thank you. :)
