Applesauce Nut Bread recipe

This is a classic quick bread recipe with applesauce and nuts. I use walnuts but the original recipe did call for pecans. I hate pecans so I substituted, but it is up to you. Really, any nuts will do.


1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup applesauce
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/3 cup oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
3 tablespoons milk
1 cup chopped nuts
2 cups flour
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda


Preheat oven to 350 degrees, use cooking spray on 8 1/2 inch loaf pan.

In large bowl, combine sugar, applesauce, oil, eggs and milk.

Stir together flour, baking powder and soda, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, salt and nutmeg.

Add flour mix to applesauce mix and beat until combined. Stir in 3/4 cup of nuts.

Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.

Combine brown sugar, rest of cinnamon and nuts. Sprinkle evenly over batter.

Bake for 1/2 hour. Cover loosely with foil and bake an additional 1/2 hour.

Remove from pan, cool on rack.
