How To Make It

To make this apple sauce bread, first add the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon) to a large bowl. Give these ingredients a quick stir. In the same bowl add in the oil, eggs, and vanilla extract and stir into the dry ingredients. The batter will be thick. Now it’s time to gently fold in the apple sauce. This will make the batter moist. Once the apple sauce is folded into batter, transfer to a lightly greased or non stick loaf pan and place in a preheated 350 degree oven to bake for 40-45 minutes. Insert a toothpick in the center and if it comes out clean, the bread is ready. Remove bread from the loaf pan and allow to cool for at least 15 minutes. Once cooled, cut into slices to enjoy!

What Apple Sauce To Buy

It’s great to use a chunky apple sauce for this recipe. It adds texture to the bread and a nice surprise to bite into. But no worries if your local grocery store doesn’t carry chunky apple sauce, the regular apple sauce works perfect as well!

Your kids will enjoy adding the ingredients and stirring the batter. This weekend could be the perfect time to try this out. Grab some applesauce and try making this super easy recipe.
