Both of these bread recipes are from a book I picked up years ago at a thrift store. How Cooking Works is a wealth of helpful information (but I’m not going to try anymore recipes from it).
Recipe #3 Toasted Oat Bread
The book claims this bread is “delicious plain or toasted with butter and jam”
I’d say it is tasty toasted with butter. I think jam would compete with the nut & raisin flavors. However the bread was VERY heavy. I doubt I’ll try it again.
Recipe #4 Applesauce Raisin Bread
I can’t rule out baker error but I think this recipe is printed wrong. I had to add extra applesauce to the batter. Before I added the extra applesauce the mixture was stiff like cookie dough, not the right consistency for a quick bread. Even with almost double the applesauce the bread still has a dry crumbly texture. I did accomplish two goals; I used Applesauce from the freezer as well as trying a new recipe.
Do you have a good Applesauce Bread recipe? I have plenty of applesauce to use up still.
