Apple Walnut Bread

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!
