I thought I would take a break from porch fluffing and share a delicious quick bread recipe. This Easy Applesauce Bread is so moist it melts in your mouth. It’s sweet…but not too sweet. There are no chunks, nuts or other things that kids might not like, so it’s the perfect family-friendly snack or dessert. I made four small loaves, but this batter would also make great muffins. Mini muffins would make an easy breakfast on the go. I love that this bread rises in the middle and cracks on the top, which makes a fluffier, lighter bread.

It feels good to be back in the kitchen, baking bread. In addition to this Easy Applesauce Bread, I’ve already made Zucchini Bread and Pumpkin Bread. Still on the list is Snickerdoodle Bread (my personal favorite.) All of these recipes can be found in my Quick Bread Category archives.
