Applesauce Nut Bread…


I love making fruit bread.  I have loaf pans of all sizes from large to tiny ones.  Fruit bread baked in the tiny loaf pans look so pretty at Christmas time wrapped in red or green plastic wrap and tied with ribbon.  This recipe is from Life Services Networks Seasoned Secrets Cook booklet.

  • 2 cups applesauce (regular or chunky)
  • 3 eggs,
  • 1 cup oil
  • 1 & 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 cups sifted flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2/3 cup chopped nuts
  • 1 cup raisins
  • Cut up maraschino cherries (optional)

Beat eggs until light and fluffy.  Add oil, sugar, vanilla and applesauce.  Mix thoroughly.  Sift dry ingredients together and add to applesauce mixture until well blended.  Pour batter into  1 or 2 greased or sprayed loaf pans.  Have oven preheated to 325 degrees.  Bake for 50 to 60 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center checks clean.  Watch the time if you are using smaller loaf pans.
