I love making bread, any kind of bread. Yeast bread, savory or sweet quick breads. ANY bread. It makes my house smell like home and feeds my family.
This Applesauce Raisin Bread is slightly sweet and is lovely toasted with butter. Enjoy it as a desert or with your coffee.
I think I’ll have another piece right now!
Applesauce Raisin Bread
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp nutmeg (fresh, if you have it!)
- 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
- 1 cup seedless raisins
- 1 cup oatmeal, uncooked (quick or old-fashioned)
- 2 eggs
- 1/3 c vegetable oil
- 1 cup applesauce (I like unsweetened, but you can use either)
Preheat oven to 350°
In a large bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, soda, and salt. Stir in spices, sugar, raisins and oatmeal. In a small bowl, beat 2 eggs with vegetable oil and applesauce. Add to dry ingredients and stir until moist, being careful to not over-stir.
Pour into greased loaf pan. Bake 40 minutes, or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Cool for at least 1/2 an hour before slicing. Enjoy!
