I made Secret's Apple Bread, but I made so many changes that I decided to post it as a separate recipe! This bread is very moist and does not suffer from having the fat removed. It is a chunky homey sort of bread that is high in fiber too! Also makes fantastic muffins or mini-muffins.
- 1 1⁄2 cups plain flour
- 1 1⁄2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 egg
- 4 egg whites
- 1 1⁄2 cups sugar
- 1 cup applesauce (unsweetened)
- 1 tablespoon vanilla essence
- 3 diced apples, with skins (granny smith or similar)
- Mix the flours, cinnamon, baking soda, salt and baking powder together in a medium bowl.
- In a large bowl beat the egg and whites, sugar, applesauce and vanilla.
- Stir in the dry ingredients, followed by the apples.
- Stir until just combined.
- I baked this in a slightly larger than normal, lightly greased, loaf pan and had enough mix left over for 8 mini-muffins.
- This mix makes great muffins as well as the apple bread.
- Cook muffins for about 20-30 minutes or until done in a 350 degree oven.
- Bake the loaf for 1 hour in a 350 degree oven.
I would make this again! I substituted buckwheat flour for the wheat flour, and I used Slenda sugar blend for sugar. I also used egg substitute for the egg and egg whites. It was very moist and tasty!
Wow, this may be low in fat but it is still high in calories and sugar! This bread has over 5 teaspoons of sugar per slice - given the recommendations are 6-8 tsp/day (women/men), that would max out my sugar allowance for the day.
this recipe was a great success with friends. added some pecans (because they were there). It made 2 fullsize or 4 mine loaves.
