Applesauce Bread

I love making quick breads. They're such easy things to whip up and they make a great breakfast or snack in the morning. My husband's mom makes applesauce muffins every once in a while, and they're always great, so when I came across this recipe for applesauce bread, I knew I had to make it straight away. I loved it. However, I felt like it was missing a little something so next time I make it, I'm going to add a bit of nutmeg or allspice to give it an extra kick. I halved the recipe to make only one loaf, but next time I will definitely make the full amount.

Applesauce Bread
Recipe from allrecipes, adapted
Makes 1 loaf

1 1/2 cups flour (I did 1/2 cup whole wheat and 1 cup all-purpose)
1 egg plus one egg white
1/2 cup canola oil
1 cup applesauce
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg or allspice
1 generous tsp baking soda
1/4 cup sour cream

Preheat oven to 350.

Dump all ingredients into a bowl and mix together until well combined.

Pour into a greased loaf pan and bake for about 60-70 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Looks delicious! I would go nutmeg over allspice...allspice seems too abrasive to me. And maybe up the cinnamon!
