Recipe File: Applesauce Sour Cream Bread

Look at those luscious slices of this quick and tasty bread

Look at the luscious slices of this quick and delish bread

I was in the mood to bake. I had sour cream and cinnamon applesauce. Mr. Google pointed me to a couple of recipes that I adapted into a really tasty quick bread that is moist and slices very nicely.

Bonus: This recipe makes two good-sized loaves. As long as I’m going through the effort to make bread it’s nice to have one to consume now and one to stash in the freezer. Next time I’ll add chopped nuts to this recipe. A delish start to the day with coffee, or with afternoon tea.

Applesauce Sour Cream Bread


1 cup butter, softened
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
2 cups cinnamon applesauce
1 cup sour cream
3-1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon allspice
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
Lightly spray (or butter) two 9″x5″ loaf pans

Combine the flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, nutmeg and allspice.

In a large bowl cream together the butter and sugar. Add the eggs, one at a time.
With the beaters running (I used a stand mixer) incorporate the applesauce and sour cream. Then add the dry mix, in three or four batches.

Divide between the two loaf pans.

Bake for about 50 minutes; test for doneness with a toothpick. When tester comes out clean, remove breads from oven and let them cool about 15 minutes before removing loaves from pans.
