Applesauce Bread

Tonight, I tried this recipe out for the second time. The first time, I went to add the appleasuce, but it had cobwebs in it. It was from an orchard upstate, and everything we got there went bad the next day. So I waited a week or so, and had a go with a NEW jar of applesauce.

It turned out REALLY well, except that I forgot the raisins and nuts. I misread because I was distracted while I was making it. So I threw some on top after it had been in the oven for about 20 minutes. The raisins got a little burnt, but they were easy to pick off. Ah well, it tasted great without them – not too sweet. The texture was perfect too! I’ll definitely make this again, the right way.
