Applesauce Bread Recipe

 

Applesauce Bread Recipe: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C) and place the oven rack in the center of the oven. Butter (or spray with a non stick vegetable spray) the bottom and sides of a loaf pan (9 x 5 x 3 inch) (23 x 13 x 8 cm). 

In a large bowl, whisk together the flours, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and ground cinnamon. Stir in the currants.

In another large bowl, combine the beaten egg, applesauce, oil, yogurt, sugar, and vanilla. With a rubber spatula or wooden spoon, lightly fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients just until all the ingredients are combined and moistened (do not over mix or the bread will be tough). Scrape the batter into the prepared pan, smoothing the top with the back of a spoon. For garnish, you can sprinkle the top of the bread with 2-3 tablespoons of rolled oats or chopped nuts. Bake for about 45 to 55 minutes, or until the bread is golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Remove from oven and place on a wire rack. Let cool about 10 minutes before removing from pan. Lovely served warm or at room temperature. Can be stored in an airtight container for several days at room temperature or in the refrigerator, or it can be frozen.

Makes 1 loaf.
