Spiced Applesauce Bread

This bread is so spicy and flavorful - It makes your house smell amazing while baking. And if you ask me, it just tastes like Fall. 

The Applesauce makes it so moist and so it is wonderful for breakfasts or lunch boxes - I think it is amazing toasted with some peanut butter. 

It makes for a wonderful grab-and-go snack and because the bread is so filled with spices you can interchange your flours to whole grain ones without anyone "tasting" the difference.

1 1/4 cups applesauce
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
3 tablespoons milk
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda 
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan.

In a large bowl, combine the applesauce, sugar, oil, eggs and milk; beat well. 

Sift in the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and salt; stir until smooth. 

Fold in the pecans. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.

Bake in preheated oven for 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into center of the loaf comes out clean.
