Recipe of the Week: Cinnamon Applesauce Bread

Doesn't the name just sound delicious?  Mmmm...cinnamon and apples who couldn't love the combination.  Well, if you don't like apple or cinnamon or if your allergic, I guess.

Anyway, I made this yesterday morning for breakfast.  It is super easy to mix up quickly (as long as children aren't hanging on your legs), smells delicious while it's baking and tastes marvelous.  When my husband got home from the gym yesterday and walked into the house while the bread was baking he said, "Somethin' smells good."

Our small family of 4 could probably eat the whole loaf at once, but we controlled ourselves pretty well.  If you want to make 2 to be on the safe side, you could probably double the recipe easily. 

Cinnamon Applesauce Bread
adapted from Heavenly Homemakers Applesauce Bread

1 3/4 cups whole spelt flour
1/2 cup honey
1/2 t. baking powder (I do a smidgen more)
1/2 t. baking soda
1/4 t. sea salt
1 t. cinnamon
1/2 t. nutmeg
3/4 cup applesauce
2 eggs (from egg substitute, if allergic)
1/4 cup butter, melted

Mix dry ingredients.  Make a well in the center and add mixture of wet ingredients (honey, applesauce, egg substitute and butter.  Stir to mix well.  Pour into a buttered bread pan.  Bake for about 45-50 minutes at 350 degrees, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the loaf comes out clean.
You can substitute whole wheat or white flour for spelt (use 1/4 cup less).  You can also use real eggs instead of the egg substitute.  

You could probably jazz this up easily by putting raisins or almonds in it.  I think next time I will put chopped up almonds on top.  Yum!
If you try this, leave me a message on what you think!
