Applesauce Bread
Homemade applesauce bread is fluffy, moist, and delicious. Loaded with fall flavors of applesauce, cinnamon, and brown sugar, that transforms your favorite snack into a loaf cake. 

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 + ½ cups all-purpose flour 

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • ½ cup brown sugar

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup unsweetened applesauce, at room temperature

  • ⅓ cup vegetable oil

  • 2 tablespoons Greek yogurt (or sour cream)

  • 2 large eggs

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Lightly grease a 5x9-inch loaf pan (1 lb. loaf pan) with cooking spray oil.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine all the dry ingredients including flour, baking powder, sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Whisk together until evenly distributed and set aside.

  3. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk well to combine all the wet ingredients including applesauce, oil, yogurt, and eggs until smooth.

  4. Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture and mix together using a spatula until just combined and no dry ingredients are visible. Do not overmix. Overmixing will make the cake dense and hard rather than fluffy.

  5. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan. Bake for 50-55 minutes until golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.

  6. Let cool for 10-15 minutes, then invert the pan onto a cooling rack or plate to remove the loaf. Serve warm or at room temperature. Drizzle with honey if desired.
