In large bowl combine:  1 1/4 C. unsweetened applesauce — 1 C. sugar — 1/2 C. cooking oil — 2 eggs — 3 T. milk

Bake approximately 40 minutes at 350 degrees.  Remove from pans and cool on rack.  Wrap and store in frig.

Note:  In case you’re feeling adventuresome — we had a neighbor once who added a tablespoon of cocoa to her applesauce bread batter.  It was a surprise to me that that was verry good!  But, I’m pretty traditional, so I still like plain, old-fashioned applesauce bread the best.

I hope that some of the recipes I’ve given you yesterday and today are ones that might “tweak” your interest.  This is a fun time to bake (and try NEW recipes to bake) because there is always someone you can share them with.

Happy Baking.
