I love this recipe; it is such an easy and versatile recipe. You can use this one recipe for a multitude of applications. Pour it into bread pans, for a great breakfast treat.

Wrap any of them up and gift to your friends and family! A fun, easy and delicious holiday gift! Preheat oven to 350°F
– 1 ½ sticks softened organic butter
– 1½ cups organic sugar
– 1 tsp vanilla
– 3 eggs organic
– 2 cups (16oz) Cinnamon Wacky Apple applesauce
Cream together butter and sugar in a stand mixer. Add remaining ingredients. Be careful to not overbeat the eggs when cooking at altitude. Mix dry ingredients together in a separate bowl. – 3 cups sifted organic flour – 1 tsp salt – 1½ tsp baking powder – 1 tsp baking soda – 1 tsp nutmeg – 1 tsp cinnamon – 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice – 2 cups fresh apples, peeled and chopped (about 3 Wacky’s Fresh Apples) Slowly add dry ingredients to wet ingredients in mixer. Once combined, remove from stand mixer and fold in chopped fresh apples. Divide between 2 bread pans, bake at 350°F for 1 hour. For cupcakes: divide batter evenly between 2 cupcake pans. Bake at 350°F for 15-20 minutes. For mini bread loaves: Bake at 350°F for 35-45 minutes.
Decorating ideas: Make a simple sugar glaze with 1 cup sifted powdered sugar and 3 TBLS Wacky Apple Juice (water also works). Drizzle and allow to dry. A simple cream cheese frosting really kicks up this recipe from a bread, to a dessert. I like this recipe: – 1 stick organic butter, softened to room temperature – 2 packages organic cream cheese, room temperature – 1 tsp vanilla – Powdered sugar to taste. 2-3 cups. Cream together first 3 ingredients until smooth. Slowly add powdered sugar until it is as sweet as you want it. Use food coloring to color your frosting. Great ideas for decorating are colorful sprinkles, candies and gummies. Enjoy!
