Daring Bakers - Applesauce Bread for Quick! Gimme a Flavour!

February has been a busy month for me, and it has taken me quite by surprise that we are already almost at the end of the month.  And the end of the month means Daring Bakers! 

The Daring Bakers’ February 2012 host was – Lis! Lisa stepped in last minute and challenged us to create a quick bread we could call our own. She supplied us with a base recipe and shared some recipes she loves from various websites and encouraged us to build upon them and create new flavor profiles.

We didn't have to use the recipes that Lis supplied - we could create a quick bread using any recipe that we wanted.  The only rules were:

  • No yeast

  • Can’t take more than 1.5 hours to prepare and bake through.

  • Only loaves or muffins/popovers

  • With those broad criteria, I chose to make this recipe for Applesauce Bread that I had bookmarked on the New York Times website.  I included raisins instead of walnuts, and made this delicious concoction:

    I highly recommend this quickbread recipe and would definitely make it again.

    To see what the other Daring Bakers made this month, visit the slide show at the Daring Kitchen website on 27 February US time (not sure if they operate on the East Coast or West Coast).
