Spiced Applesauce Bread

After a brief vacation, I am back in the kitchen. I wanted something quick to make for breakfast, yet something hearty. I'm not really a bagel or biscuit person, but I'm a sucker for a quickbread. This recipe was based on one I found on one of the many vegetarian groups I belong to.

I love the spice and moistness, and the flax meal really gives it a lovely nutty texture and taste.

Applesauce Bread

Spiced Applesauce Bread
1/2 c flax seed meal
1/2 c whole wheat flour
1 c white flour
3/4 c sugar
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
3/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp ginger
1 egg (or egg substitute)
1 c applesauce (I used an apple blackberry sauce)
2 tbsp melted butter

Preheat oven to 350. Combine dry ingredients in small bowl. Combine all wet ingredients in large bowl, and add dry ingredients. Stir until combined, and spread into a greased loaf pan. Bake in preheated oven for about an hour, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out dry.
Remove from oven and pan, and cool completely.

Yum! Mine just cooled enough to slice and taste. I made another applesauce spice bread earlier this week that I wasn't so fond of. This recipe beats the pants off it. I added a chopped apple, because we have a glut of apples. Delish.

Thanks for sharing!

Looks delicious. Nice recipe. Wonder about adding just a bit of pumpkin butter to it?

I made muffins out of this recipe and they turned out great!

Also, instead of the butter, I added a little more applesauce. Not dry one bit. For those looking to save on a few calories.
