Recipe: Applesauce Bread

in recipes, watch me bake

Yum! I found this recipe on an apple link round up, and knew that it would fit nicely into my new eating plan.  I found this bread to be very moist (especially for a whole wheat bread) with an excellent flavor.  I’ve been eating it for breakfast after lightly toasting it and spreading it with just a little butter (or in my case, SmartBalance).  

Applesauce Bread  
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup sugar, Splenda, or honey, your choice
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
3/4 cup no-sugar added applesauce
2 eggs
1/4 cup butter or buttery spread, melted

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease an 8×4 loaf pan with baking spray. 
Mix together flour, sugar/Splenda (if using), baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg.  Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add applesauce, honey, eggs, and melted butter.  Mix together until just combined.
Pour into prepared pan and bake 40-50 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.  Cool in pan 10-15 minutes, then invert on a wire rack.

Cook’s notes: I found that the bread started browning a little too much for me, so I tented it with foil after about 30 minutes.  If you make this with Splenda and SmartBalance, there are 2 WWs points per slice.
