Bake It: Applesauce Bread

Applesauce Bread

My CSA boxes have included lots of apples, which I’ve been turning into applesauce for my daughter’s lunchbox.  This week I reserved enough applesauce to make a delicious applesauce bread.

I looked at many recipes online and ultimately decided on the one from Joy of Baking because it used the least amount of sugar, and I liked the incorporation of whole wheat flour.  I used unsweet applesauce, and the result was a bread that was moist, hearty, cinnamon-y, and just a tad sweet.  The only dried fruit I had on hand was cherries, and it was a good flavor combo for us (my family loves tart cherries), but any dried fruit will work great.

I used the Joy of Baking Applesauce Bread Recipe HERE, and didn’t alter it at all, except for replacing the currants with cherries.  You can see how I make my homemade applesauce HERE

Do you have any favorite bread recipes?  I’m thinking of making some loaves to give as gifts this year and would love to know what recipes you use.

Happy baking!

  6. It does look good, and I haven't baked w/currants so I think the idea of the cherry substitute is an awesome choice.
