Thanksgiving In Verona: Applesauce Bread

The days leading up to Thanksgiving can be busy and stressful. There are school parties and feasts, a half day the day before, and possibly guests coming in from out of town. Even with good planning, Thanksgiving morning can be one of those days where as I’m just about to stuff my turkey, one of my kids comes up to me and asks for breakfast. With butter all over my hands, and raw turkey germs, that can be tricky.

Here is a recipe from Amy Dunphy, pastry chef at Hobcaw Cafe, for Applesauce Bread. There’s not nothing like a homemade cake for breakfast, and while your kids are eating something homemade, you can continue buttering and stuffing your turkey. This is also a great thing to bring to someone’s house if you are traveling. If it’s anything like Amy’s Cinnamon Swirl bread, I know my kids will love it. Thanks Amy!

Hobcaw Cafe Applesauce Bread


  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups applesauce

What’s Next: 

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Sift the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, & nutmeg in a medium sized bowl & set aside.
  3. Whisk the oil, sugar, & eggs in a separate large bowl then combine the dry ingredients into this mixture.
  4. Fold in the applesauce.
  5. Pour into 2 greased loaf pans.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for about an hour but check it with a toothpick in center since ovens vary.

Notes from my experience:

There is definitely enough batter for two loaf pans.

This bread is delicious. I made one loaf plain and on the other I sprinkled cinnamon sugar. Both are wonderful and if you put a piece in the toaster and then add some butter, it’s out of this world!
