Cannot remember who gave me this recipe, but it makes a moist bread that I love. You can use different applesauces to change the flavor and texture. I like the chunky kind! Makes 2 loaves
- 3 cups flour
- 3 eggs
- 2 cups sugar
- 1 cup vegetable oil
- 2 cups applesauce
- 1 cup chopped pecans (optional)
- 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1⁄2 cup sour cream or 1⁄2 cup buttermilk
- Preheat oven to 350.
- Grease and flour 2 9x5 loaf pans.
- Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Pour into pans.
- Bake 1 hour 20 minutes.
- Cool on wire racks.
I baked this recipe in two 9x5 loaf pans, baking 1 hour 15 min at 350 degrees. It turned out very moist, and I served the slices topped with whipped cream, which added quite a bit to the flavor. I've only baked this recipe one time, and I used sour cream. I used 1 1/2 cups sugar. Maybe I should have used the full 2 cups sugar.
I made this recipe with Splenda and cinnamon. The bread itself was delicious but I couldn't get the time baking it quite right. I made a pan of muffins, baked 40 minutes, that were perfect. But I also made a loaf of bread, baked an hour and 5 minutes at 350, that was brown outside and but not done inside. Still gave it four stars because it was tasty, but watch your oven time when you make it.
This is excellent and easy bread. Very moist and terrific flavor. I made sour milk with milk and vinegar to use in place of the buttermilk. I also used cinnamon instead of the pumpkin pie spice. My applesauce was regular unsweetened and skipped the optional nuts. I baked in three 8 x 4 foil pans and they were done in about 40-45 minutes. I think 1 hour and 20 minutes might be too long for 9 x 5 pans, so if you use that size, please keep an eye on them. Thanks for posting...I'll definitely make this again and again.
