Please enjoy this Applesauce Bread recipe from my recent video “A Relaxing Sunday At Home.” The bread is about as wonderful as wonderful can be. Moist. Slightly sweet. Fragrant with cinnamon. I love it all on its own for Afternoon Tea, although you can certainly toast and butter a slice for breakfast!

If you are looking for a quick bread that looks and tastes like a pleasant autumn afternoon, this Applesauce Bread is for you. I hope you will give it a try.
- 2 cups (260g) all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 large egg
- 1 1/4 cups (295g) unsweetened applesauce
- 1/4 cup (55g) neutral-tasting oil, such as avocado oil
- 1/2 cup (120g) plain yogurt
- 1/2 cup (105g) brown sugar (dark or light as you please)
- 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- Center the oven rack, and preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan, and, if desired, line the bottom of the pan with baking parchment.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.
- In a large bowl, beat the egg with a whisk. Then whisk in the applesauce, oil, yogurt, brown sugar, and vanilla.
- Add the dry mixture to the wet, and stir just until the flour disappears into the batter. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and smooth the top.
- Bake until the loaf puffs and browns, and when a skewer inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean -- 45-55 minutes. Cool the bread in its pan for 10 minutes, and then unmold and cool completely before slicing.
