  1. Place ingredients in the pan of the bread machine in the order recommended by the manufacturer. Select cycle; press Start. Let the dough mix for 3 to 5 minutes, until all ingredients are thoroughly combined. If necessary, use a rubber spatula to push the dough from the sides of the bread pan. After 3 to 5 minutes have passed on the clock display, press Stop. Smooth out the top of the loaf with the rubber spatula. Select Bake setting and press Start.
  2. To test the bread for doneness, insert a toothpick into the center top. Remove the toothpick. If the bread is done, the toothpick will come out clean. If there is dough on the toothpick, reset the machine to Bake and continue an additional 10 to 15 minutes. Test again with toothpick to assure the bread is completely baked. Remove the pan from the machine but allow the bread to remain in the pan for 10 minutes before removing the bread and placing on a wire rack to cool.

I added some yeast and more flour and it turned out fine. Kinda dense...but I fear it would not have risen if I didn't add those things. Family loved the taste.

I love this recipe. The bread is a cross between a bread and a cake. I increased the apple sauce to 1 cup. I used one tsp of cinnamon and half a tsp of nutmeg which gave it a nice aroma and flavor. It is great for dessert with ice cream on top, fresh fruit or for bread pudding. I will make this again.

this is a wonderful bread - it's deceptive though. At first glance I thought this was a regular bread but wondered where the yeast was... then I looked again and noticed it's a sweet/cake bread like banana or zuch. Once keeping that in mind while making it, I fell in love.

This recipe tastes great and is super easy! It could be a little more moist though.

The bread was a little dry because no shortening is added. The applesauce flavor isn't strong enough. It should be worth trying adding more applesauce next time, and hopefully there won't be too much moisture. I can't complain about this bread being lowfat though!

This was a great recipe but I made some revisions to cut down the calories even further. Also, I do not like "sweet" breads and this is why I cut down the sugar. Note that my version is NOT SWEET AT ALL Also I used my oven since I do not own a bread machine... I used 250g flour, 1 egg, 1tsp baking powder, 1/2tsp baking soda, 3tbl sugar, 1 tbl oil, 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon, and 200g applesauce. The trick to not making it dense is to not over mix the dough. So first, combine all the dry ingredients except the sugar. Then combine all the wet ingredients plus the sugar (separately from the dry). Then sift the dry ingredients into the wet and FOLD in with a silicone spatula. Do NOT beat the mixture. Just mix so that the batter is still lumpy but all the flour looks incorporated. Then bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes and check with a tooth pick. If you follow these tips you will have a light, not dense, bread to enjoy! :)
