This makes the most moist bread. I made these in mini loaf pans for gifts one Christmas and the were quite popular. It's also a great way to use your applesauce!

This is a 5 star recipe. I made this for my Dad and sense Mom died no body has been able to bake as well as her. But Dad loved this bread and said it was as good as moms.

Love this bread. It was so easy to make and I made it using my bread machine. Came out moist. My family loved it the only thing I added was a little bit of brown sugar because My apple sause was unsweetened.
