As seen on WKTV NEWSChannel 2 Harried Housewife Cranberry Applesauce Bread
Hearty loaves of fresh-baked bread are welcome additions to holiday celebrations. And when they include merry-red cranberries, tasty applesauce, and aromatic spices, they’re even better.
Ideal for passing at the table, enjoying on Christmas morning, or to give as a hostess gift, this flavor-packed bread is a seasonal delight. Sprinkle with confectioners’ sugar just before serving to add the look of new-fallen snow.
Whatever the occasion, sharing home-baked bread with those near and dear is a delicious way to celebrate the spirit of Christmas.
CRANBERRY APPLESAUCE BREAD
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground allspice
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 cups applesauce
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
1/2 cup milk
1 cup chopped fresh cranberries
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Confectioners’ sugar (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease the bottoms of four 5×3-inch loaf pans. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, allspice, salt, and baking powder. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, applesauce, sugar, brown sugar, butter, and milk. Add to flour mixture; stir just until moistened. Stir in cranberries and walnuts. Divide batter amongst prepared pans. Bake until a toothpick inserted in centers comes out clean, 33 to 38 minutes. Cool in pans 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack. Cool completely. Sprinkle with confectioners’ sugar, if desired. Makes 4 miniature loaves.
