Cinnamon Applesauce Bread Simple Ingredients:

All-purpose flour

Ground cinnamon

Baking powder




Brown sugar



Walnuts, chopped and divided (could use pecans)


You can easily make this recipe to suit your taste! If you don’t like raisins.. leave them out or use craisins and you can add the nuts or leave them out too. Use pecans if you don’t like walnuts. You could easily add a glaze to this bread as well. This bread is a great way to use up applesauce and it really give it a great taste.

Recipe feedback: “Oh my I’m so happy I found this, all my favorite flavors. I added 1/4 dried cherries along with the raisins, plus 1/2 cup cinnamon chips since there’s never too much cinnamon flavor for me. Wow! Fantastic, thank you!” – Anna
