Oatmeal Applesauce Bread

I love baking bread when I have time on Saturdays.  It makes the house smell so good, you get to have lunch time sandwiches on fresh bread and it makes the best french toast for Sunday mornings.
The recipe below lets you use your bread machine, which makes things even easier!  I don't like the size of the loaves that my bread machine makes, so I use the dough cycle and then take it out of the machine.
I place the dough in a loaf pan and let it rise for about a half hour or so, then bake in the oven for about
30 minutes at 375 degrees.

Note:  I didn't have dry milk powder, so I used 1/3 cup water and 1/3 cup milk instead of 2/3 cup water and it was fine.

Oatmeal Applesauce Bread

2/3 cup warm water
2 1/4 cups bread flour
1 T white sugar
1 T dry milk powder
1 tsp. salt
1 T butter, melted
1/4 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup applesauce
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 (.25 oz.) package active dry yeast

Place ingredients in the pan of the bread machine in the order recommended by the manufacturer.  Select cycle; press start.


  1. This looks so simple yet so delicious! Does it have a really strong apple cinnamon flavor?

  2. Sounds wonderful. Thanks for the tip on substitution for the dry milk - I can only find it in huge packets!

  3. Amy~ the apple cinnamon flavor is very light, which made it nice for sandwiches too.

  4. Ohhh my..I bet your house smelled amazing while this bread was baking!
