Apple Sauce Bread

Apple Sauce Bread

I am strong believer in the baking as therapy. Granted, the situation doesn’t always lend itself to being therapeutic, there are a lot of variables. Like, is there a glass of wine involved? Are there children underfoot? Etc.

But in just the right context, baking can melt away the stress of the day. I like to intentionally bake for fun before the stress of the holidays- bake for me. This apple sauce bread recipe is a great, simple dessert to make to have around the house to snack on.
