AppleSauce Bread

When I lived in California, I tutored a student whose Mom was always making bread with her bread machine. I would chat with his Mom after our sessions and she would always offer me a piece of bread. She used a book called "The Bread Machine Cook Book" by Donna Rathmell German

I borrowed her book for a little while and made the Sally Lunn loaf. Talk about rich and delicious! I haven't tried that one since I cut eggs and dairy out of my diet. A

A short while after giving her book back, I visited my Aunt in Oakland who had the same book on her shelf! She said she never used it and so she let me have it. :-)

I used it some when I lived in the Atlanta area and hadn't used it all in the 6 years I've lived in Texas. I pulled it out yesterday and decided to try the AppleSauce Bread. The kids rate it 5 stars, so I thought I would share the recipe. This recipe is for a small loaf.

1 cup applesauce
2tbs margarine or butter
1tbs sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon, optional
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cups bread flour
1 1/2 tsp yeast

My daughter tried hers with a little smart balance on top drizzled with honey. She said it was great!


  1. It was very good. The loaf finished about 8:30 the night I made it and it was gone by the next afternoon! :-)

  2. I'm gonna try this recipe this week, it sounds wonderful!
