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.
- 3⁄4 cup apple cider
- 1⁄2 cup applesauce
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 3 cups bread flour
- 1⁄3 cup quick-cooking oats
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 3⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon apple pie spice
- 1 teaspoon yeast
- In microwave, heat cider to 110-120°. In bread machine pan place warmed cider, brown sugar and yeast. Allow yeast to bubble for 10 minutes.
- Add applesauce, butter, salt, spice and oats to pan. Add flour last.
- Set machine to dough cycle and after it runs through, remove dough and form into a loaf. Place in greased loaf pan and turn to coat. Cover with plastic and a towel and let rise in a warm place till doubled, about an hour.
- Bake 350° for 25-30 minutes till golden and hollow sounding. Cool in pan for 10 minutes and remove.
This is wonderful bread! The only change I made was to add 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon. The flavor was slightly sweet, the house was filled with the wonderful aroma of baking apples, and the texture was perfect! It was fabulous out of the oven with a bit of butter, but I enjoyed it even more as toast for breakfast this morning. Next time I make this bread I will try subbing some whole wheat flour for part of the regular flour. All 5 of my kids thought this was very yummy too!
