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.

    Thanks for a yummy recipe, Crystal. I just made up 2 loaves of this – one for our family and one to give away. Also, thanks for the reminder about the joy of baking… and baking in the right frame of mind. I love the wine idea. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
