We have a giant apple tree so also lots of applesauce. This is a good way to use up some of it. Reduce the sugar if you are using sweetened applesauce. I amended this recipe from a recipe I got from Taste Of Home.

Directions

  1. In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar.
  2. Add the egg and applesauce; mix well.
  3. Combine the flour, wheat germ, baking soda, cinnamon, baking powder, salt, nutmeg and cloves.
  4. Stir into creamed mixture just until moistened.
  5. Fold in dried fruit and nuts.
  6. Pour into a greased 8 inch x 4 inch loaf pan.
  7. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 60 to 65 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
  8. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.

YUM! I used only 1/2 cup of sugar (will probably use less next time) and skipped on the wheat germ and nuts (my kids don't like crunchy things in their bread lol). I used raisins for the fruit as everyone loves apples and raisins but may try dried apple rings next time.
