I found this recipe on another web site while looking for a recipe to use up some apples my neighbor had given me. It looked like it would be alot like banana bread, which my family loves so I gave it a try. OMG this puts banana bread to shame. We all love it. And while it's cooking, the house smells divine! I won't be able to make it often, I keep going back for more.
This bread is so moist and flavorful that my kids even eat the ends, which for most quick breads I usually have to throw away. At Christmas, I make the mini loaves and give as gifts to my neighbors. The oil can be replaced with 1 cup of unsweetened applesauce. Still flavorful but not quite as moist. If possible, don't skip the walnuts, they really add to it.
We liked the expensive bread from the grocery store for toast. This is better, and you can cut it as thick or thin as you like! It is also really good for french toast. I always use my ABM to knead it for me then I rise it and bake it in a regular loaf pan.
Baked oatmeal is so yummy and if you haven't tried it, you're missing out! This recipe is special in several respects- for one, it contains not only rolled oats, but also oat bran and steel-cut oats. It's also not too high in fat and you mix in some fruit of your choosing, for an extra tasty treat. Delicious and healthy, this is the kind of special breakfast you can feel good about serving your family in the morning. Enjoy! (From BH&G)
At last, an easy-to-make "scratch" cake recipe that does not need frosting! Recipe has been modified from one given to me by a friend years ago... 6/30/07 NOTE: This is not a standard chocolate cake recipe nor a spice cake recipe. The cocoa and chocolate chips help add to the "dark chocolaty" flavor and appearance but the applesauce and spices give it a unique flavor addition, producing a dark, moist cake with a different flavor with the added bonus of being a no-frost cake.
These are moist brownie like bars with just the right amount of chocolate and peanuts. This recipe was originally high fat, but I successfully substitute applesauce for most of the margarine. Excellent served warm, although still very good cool.
This is a fabulous recipe for banana bread! This can also be baked in mini loaf pans and it also makes 12 muffins, bake for 20-25 minutes. I also added in some shredded carrots and nuts then baked it in a 9x5-inch loaf pan, for less fat use low-fat yogurt or sour cream
Since the rain, cold and gray of pre-winter has set in I have the desire to be baking again. This is one of my real favorites. It bakes up with that wonderful aroma of cinnamon and apples that just welcomes everyone be they family or guests.
I got this recipe from beginnertriathlete.com this summer and have been making it constantly ever since. I have adapted it slightly by omitting the nuts and using skim milk instead of buttermilk. I make it with applesauce but you can substitute it for canola oil quite nicely.
Full of the good stuff- and you get to choose what the good stuff is! This is good for people with juicers, too, because you can use your juice pulp for the pulp called for in the recipe. Credit goes to the wonderful "Diana in Wisconsin" of the Simple Living Discussion Forums. Cook time includes soak time for the oatmeal. I'm sure you could also add about 1/2 cup fruit, raisins or nuts too. These are also vegan, as long as you don't use dairy for the liquid. You can add a Tbs or two of sugar if you want a little sweetness.
