This is a busy month for me (presentation on Tuesday, written project due Thursday and a test on Thursday) but I wanted to post this recipe I found. Since I am leaving in a month to Colorado and will not be returning back to Florida for 3 months, I have to start using some of the ingredients I have in the fridge and the pantry. One of those ingredients is applesauce so what better food to make than applesauce bread. This bread wasn't overly sweet and gets most of it's sweetness from the brown sugar and cinnamon crumb topping. Towards the end of the baking time, I was afraid the topping would burn. It didn't (thank goodness), but was getting awfully close. Next time I am going to add it the last 30 minutes or so. Try using raising and nuts in this bread, but with added points. I gave my in laws half the bread, since 16 slices is a bit much for just me to eat and they loved it. My mother in law said to keep the recipe so who am I to argue. Also, I wanted to say thanks for all the encouraging words I have gotten from you guys. It really means a lot to know you are not alone. You guys are the best!
