A Sweet & Spicy Weekend - Spiced Applesauce Bread

I promised on Monday that I would post the recipe I used to review my new loaf pan from CSN stores and I am here to follow through.  This blend of sweets, spices and nuts will be the perfect way to kick off your weekend.  Enjoy!!

Spiced Applesauce Bread

1 1/4 cups applesauce
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
3 tablespoons milk
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees 
Lightly grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan

In a large bowl, combine the applesauce, sugar, oil, eggs and milk; beat well

Sift in the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and salt; stir until smooth. 

Fold in the pecans. 

(this is Bruce chopping the pecans in our Tupperware 'lil Chopper that I got years ago)

Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.

Bake in preheated oven for 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into center of the loaf comes out clean

Let cool


Note: I have no idea what it means to "fold in the pecans" - I just stirred them in, seemed to work out just fine!!

Everybody, have a great weekend!!


  1. "Folding in" is just a fancy way of saying "gently stir". At that point you don't want to overmix your batter bc it will get too much air in and not cook properly. [You can tell I've been reading too many cooking blogs.... :)]

  2. Thanks for posting this recipe! I'm going to bookmark it and probably cook it next week when I can get to the store and get all the ingredients I need.

    P.S. I was totally gonna say what Beth said about what folding means, just a gentle stir!
