Applesauce is the reason this bread is so moist and tender. It's a snap to make in your bread machine too!

Just what a bread should be like and quite healthy as well as tasty. I used unsweetened applesauce and exact amounts of ingredients (2.5 teaspoons yeast since I had a jar not packages). Give this a try! Read More

MMMM Smells like oatmeal cookies when baking. Very good lightly sweet bread. Don't really taste the applesauce but still very good and moist! I am making another loaf tonight. Followed the recipe exactly. Read More

This is a great recipe! I used apple juice instead of water. No sugar but a tablespoon of molasses. 2 cups flour and 1/2 cup oats. Is so yummy. I also tried it with putting a cinnamon swirl in the bread by rolling it out into a rectangle putting just a little bit of applesauce on it and sprinkling a brown sugar/cinnamon mix on it rolling it up short end sealing it with a little water and put in the bread pan seal side down. YUM-O Read More

The first time I made this it wasn't moist or tender but the taste was great - so I tweaked it a bit - substituted 1 c. of whole wheat flour used milk instead of powdered milk added some more spice and upped the applesauce by an extra table spoon - and now it is fantastic. Read More

This made a great breakfast bread! I used 2 tablespoons of honey instead of white sugar to make it a little sweeter and because I don't like to use white sugar and everyone loved it for breakfast with peanut butter. With my substitution it needed to bake a few minutes longer. Read More

Great recipe just as it is but you can tweak it without fear of ruining it. Used apple butter in stead of sauce brown sugar instead of white reduced flour 1/4 cup and used 1/2 cup oatmeal. I don't have yeast packets so I used two teaspoons dry yeast (elevation 5300 feet). everyone likes both versions. Next time I make it I will use some of the other reviewers suggestions such as using some whole wheat and I'll add some dried cranberries. Oh yeah....I'll hide the loaf until breakfast so I can have more than one slice! Read More

I liked this a lot. It rises nicely (but I added 2 T. gluten). It's also easy to make. I used half whole wheat flour. Read More

This is SO good. I didn't have rolled oats so I used old fashioned oats instead. Worked fine. I also added a little more cinnamon than the recipe called for because I wanted it to taste "breakfasty" which it did. I assembled it the night before and programmed the bread machine to have it ready when we woke up. Yumm-o. If you do that be sure to add a little extra water so it doesn't dry out over night. Will for sure make again! Read More

Rock on buddy this is an awesome recipe! I didn't have rolled oats so I used quick oats and I also used 1/2 cup of them and reduced the flour by 1/4 cup to compensate. I also subbed some whole wheat flour for some of the white flour. Very moist slices pretty easy I made mine on the light crust setting. Read More
