Every so often I find myself with leftovers and in need of baking. On this particular day I had a few too many apples as well as some leftover (homemade) applesauce in the fridge. What to do? I made up my own recipe for apple bread on the spot, and today I want to share it with you.
Combine (in order listed) in a bowl:
- 1/2cup (1 stick) butter
- 1/2-3/4 cup sugar (depends on your preference!)
- 1 1/2 cups applesauce (flexible! A bit more or less is fine)
- 2 eggs
- 1tsp vanilla
- 1 1/4 cups flour
- 1tsp baking soda
- 1tsp cinnamon
- walnuts (to taste – I added about a cup)
- apple chunks (I added 2 small apples cubed to around 3/4″ cubes)
Bake at 350 in a buttered (the butter is key! adds crispiness!) loaf pan it makes 2 smaller or 1 large loaf of yum. About 55 min- test that it is fully cooked of course.
Once it is cooled you can enjoy! I sliced mine up and froze it in parchment paper so that there are single servings of yumminess just waiting in the freezer. If you have a favorite fall bread- do share! I love simple baking!
