The recipe sounds wonderful. Tasty cinnamon, apples etc. I am baking this bread as I write to you. What I have found, is that there is not enough liquid in it. It calls for 1 cup of water, when in all bread making machines, it states 3 ounces of liquid per 1 cup of flour. When my machine started out, it was extremely dry, so I added another 1/4 cup of water. When it is baked, I will get back to you on my findings. Thanks for posting. If it turns out the way it sounds, I will be using it again. I made this recipe again as I said I would....turned out beautifully with the changes I made. I added 1/4cup 8 grain cereal to it as well as the 1/4 more water. Very nice bread. Thanks again for the posting.

Absolutely wonderful!! THE best looking/feeling bread dough - consistently - with no worries.

I make the dough in my bread machine on the dough cycle. It always *looks* a bit dry when the cycle first starts off.....just give it time. Every single time I have made this, it eventually works the applesauce in and produces a beautiful dough.

I then form it, put it in a greased loaf pan, let it rise (only takes another 30 min. or so) then bake it at 350 degrees F. for about 30-35 min. With my five kiddos, I could bake this bread once a day and not have leftovers! Great for toast, pb&j's, or just a yummy slice for a snack!

Thank you, THANK YOU, for such an easy, tasty recipe!!

*one change: I used 3/4 c. dry oats (old fashioned) instead of the 3/4 c.granola cereal. I just didn't have any cereal. Not sure how the cereal would change the end product, but the oats works just fine ~ delicious!
