Apple Sauce Bread Loaf

Too many apples lying in my fridge makes me to bake this loaf bread with apple sauce.  The bread turns out well, very soft, moist and fluffy.  The cinnamon aroma is more intense than the apple flavour. 
Ingredients
[makes 2 loaves x 600 gm or 24 slices of 1.5 cm width]
500 gm bread flour
100 gm wholemeal flour
100 gm plain flour
1 portion of the apple sauce*
2 tbsp milk powder [I omit]
1 tsp salt
3 tbsp sugar [I used brown sugar]
6 tsp instant yeast
1 egg 
380 ml water [or egg + water = 410 ml] - use less if apple sauce is too watery60 gm butter
Apple Sauce Ingredients and Method
3 green apples - peeled, cored and diced small bits
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp cinnamon powder
1 tbsp butter
In a saucepan, stir and cook the diced apples and cinnamon until soft.
Stir in the butter until well combined and the sauce is thick.
Remove to cool.  Blend before use.
  1. Knead all dough ingredients [except butter and water] on slow speed to combine.  Add in water gradually as you may need less than 380 ml because of the egg and apple sauce.   Continue kneading on medium speed until dough is soft and smooth [about 7-10 minutes].
  2. Add in butter and continue kneading on low speed from the start then turn to medium speed [Kenwood mixer - speed 3] when butter and dough has combined.  Knead for about 5-7 minutes until smooth, elastic and dough is not sticky.
  3. Form dough into a ball.  Place in a bowl covered to rest for 20 minutes or double in size.
  4. Punch down rested dough.  Divide into 2 equal portions.  Round up into a ball.  Fold into thirds then roll each portion into a long rectangle.   Roll up like swiss roll and seal the edges well.    Place the  loaves in greased Pullman's tins.
  5. Leave in oven to proof until double in size [about 1 hour or rise over the rim of the baking tin].
  6. Bake in preheated oven at 150 degrees C for 40 minutes.  Remove and cool on wire rack.

Hi Kimmy! This bread is so special as it contains apple sauce. Apples go quite well with cinnamon.

Hi Madeline, sometimes I failed too. Practice does make perfect at times.

Hi Phong Hong, the cinnamon aroma is quite mild but overall very nice.

Hi Karen, I ate this without any spread. Goes well with a hot cup of milk coffee.

Hi Mui Mui, can use up too many left over apples in the fridge, hehehe!

Nic said...

Hi Kimmy! Lovely bread! Can I know how many apple sauce in gram which I need to bake this bread? I have some organic apple sauce. 😄

Kimmy said...

Hi Nic, sorry for the late response. The home-made apple sauce weighs about 200gm [depends on size of the apples]. You have to be careful when adding the remaining liquid cos' apple sauce has liquid.
