I LOVE the fall. Everything about this season makes my heart sing. The color change, the weather change, the ability to rock a hooded sweatshirt, roll in the leaves, pick a pumpkin, do some baking, watch our favorite football teams, and pick apples are all things that make this time of year special for my family.
One of our favorite fall recipes that is perfect to accompany any warm delicious fall dinner is a loaf of Applesauce Pumpkin Bread. This stuff is super easy to make. It is moist and delicious!
Here is what my G
reat Aunt Wilma put in her recipe: PS>>> SHE WAS A SMART LADY
2/3 cup Margarine
2 2/3 cup Sugar
1 cup pumpkin
1 cup Applesauce
3 1/3 cup flour
2 t baking soda
1/2 t baking powder
1 t cinnamon
1/2 t nutmeg
2/3 cup apple juice
I add a little helper to my recipe as this bread is pretty hard to screw up. I love to have my daughter practice her numbers on this bread because if we are a hint off we have still managed to pull together a good finished product.
Here is how you put this together... super easy...
Preheat oven to 350F. Cream margarine and sugar. Add eggs one at a time beating after each egg is added. Stir in applesauce and pumpkin. Stir together dry ingredients and add alternately with apple juice. Place batter in two large greased loaf pans. Bake for one hour. Let cool before you remove from loaf pans.
How easy is that?
Just give it a try... you won't regret it!
Until Next Time,
