Apple Bread
3/4 cup finely chopped, peeled apples
3/4 cups warm apple juice
1/4 cup applesauce
1 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp nutmeg
2 cups bread flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
2 1/4 tsp yeast

Add all ingredients to the bread machine and bake on basic setting.

Since I don't have a bread machine, I just adapted the recipe to my Bosch as follows:

Combine applesauce, juice, butter, brown sugar, yeast and the whole wheat flour in mixing bowl. Let sponge 10 minutes.

Add remaining ingredients, mix then use more or less bread flour to make a soft dough that sweeps the sides of the bowl clean. Let knead five minutes. Remove from bowl to an oiled surface; and divide into balls. Form into loaves and let rise in a warm place till double (30 minutes or so). Bake at 350 for 22-25 minutes.

We tripled this and I made the applesauce just before making the bread, since I didn't have any on hand. I used Granny Smith apples.
