Applesauce Bread

A moist bread, full of raisins and cinnamon flavor.  Small chunks of apples would also be delicious in the bread.  Comes together in minutes.

adapted from Plainville Turkey Farms

  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 TBSP cinnamon
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 cups raisins (can substitue chunks of apples for half)
  • 3 eggs
  • 3/4 cup oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups applesauce
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • extra cinnamon and sugar for sprinkling (about 2 TBSP sugar-1 tsp cinnamon?)
Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour 2 bread pans or use baking cooking spray.
Mix together all dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, sugar and salt.  Add raisins and stir to separate and coat raisins.  Beat eggs until bubbles form on top.  Add vanilla, oil, applesauce and sour cream.  Whisk until thick and custard like.  Add wet ingredients to dry and mix until dry ingredients disappear.  Pour equal amounts into bread pans.
Sprinkle top with some cinnamon/sugar mixture.  Bake for 45-60. (I took mine out @ 45 minutes and the center of the loaf there was a tiny bit that was not cooked enough even though my toothpick came out clean)  Cut and enjoy.
