Pink applesauce bread is one of my favorite sweet bread in the whole wide world. Yes, I am partial to banana and pumpkin loaves, too, but there is just something special about a sweet apple bread that gets my heart pounding. Maybe it’s because it reminds me of the apple orchard I used to go to as a young girl. I always loved going to this place. The smells of the cider and cinnamon doughnuts cooking were heavenly. Do you have any childhood memories that are invoked by food?
Once I got older, married, and had a few little ones of my own, I would take my kids to the very same apple orchard. My son, when he was about three, would swipe apples and take little bites out of it before I could stop him. Luckily, I knew the owner and she always laughed it off. I’d buy my apples and we would head on home to bake this bread. Sweet memories!
