I love apples, applesauce, cinnamon, and bread. So this is a favorite when it is raining out (or sunshine). On all of my recipes I use organic ingredients when available and organic, free-range eggs when available.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
One 5″x9″ bread pan, I line with parchment paper but you could butter or spray
- 1/2 cup butter, softer than room temp (I usually stick in the oven for two minutes while it pre-heats)
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup turbinado sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup applesauce
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1 & 3/4 cups flour
- pinch salt
- 1 teaspoon to 1 tablespoon cinnamon (to your taste)
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
In a bowl combine all dry ingredients
Using a standing mixer on low, combine the wet ingredients until well mixed. Then slowly (I do it in five parts) add in the dry ingredients until well mixed. Pour mixture into bread pan and bake for ~50 minutes. Remove from oven.
I love the parchment paper for easy removal from the bread pan and then cool until you can touch before cutting with a bread knife. Or just dig in with your hands and enjoy!
