Applesauce Bread kind of morning

I made banana bread earlier in the week with the old bananas that I bought at Harris Teeter when they were on clearance that were finally bad.  I finished the heels of the bread this morning so I decided it was a good day to make some Applesauce bread.  I found a recipe awhile ago when searching for uses of all the applesauce that I bought when my son still liked applesauce.  Now that he greatly dislikes it, I figured that I would make cake, cookies and other baked goods to use it up.  I used up the first jar and went on to the second jar.  This is probably one of my favorites because it is super yummy, easy to make and feels healthy :)  Isn't applesauce healthy even if you mix it into bread???  I made it and had to test it first... okay I forgot to take a picture and it smelled so yummy that I got a piece and my son took a piece but doesn't it still look yummy???

If you want to try it for yourself, please feel free to test it out.  Let me know what you think :)

Applesauce Bread

1/3 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 1/4 cups applesauce
1 1/2 cups flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves

In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add the egg and applesauce and mix. Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, baking powder, salt, nutmeg and cloves. Add until combined. Pour into greased loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 60-65 minutes.

The batter looks nice and dark even before baking.  Don't worry if you see spots of butter because it will all bake into the bread even if it doesn't look as creamy as other batters.  The bread will get nice and cripsy along the edges which is my favorite part :)
