Make It Now:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a 9 inch loaf pan (I like and use this metal pan) with cooking spray.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, oil, applesauce, vanilla, and sugar.
  3. Add the wet ingredients to the dry mix and stir until combined. Do not over mix.
  4. Bake until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the middle, about 40-45 minutes in a metal loaf pan (50-60 minutes for glass pan).
  5. Let cool slightly before slicing. Serving suggestion: smear a warm slice with butter. For a sweeter treat, sprinkle with more sugar and cinnamon.

Freeze For Later: Bake and let bread cool completely. Wrap tightly in a few layers of plastic wrap and foil. Squeeze out all the air, seal, and freeze.

Prepare From Frozen: Let bread thaw on the counter or in the fridge. Or you can use the defrost setting on your microwave.
