Oh how I love this Spiced Applesauce Bread with Pecans. It's amazing how such an easy recipe like this can taste so good!
Maybe it's because I love the combination of Ground Cinnamon, Nutmeg and Allspice. I mean does anybody not like those 3 spices together? Throw in some Applesauce and you have one delicious loaf!
🥜 Nut Allergy Warning
I made this bread recipe once without the Chopped Pecans as I was serving someone who had a severe nut allergy and it still tasted really good.
Another time I used Chopped Walnuts instead of Pecans as that was all I had on-hand and wasn't in the mood to go to my local grocery store for just 1 ingredient. I found this applesauce bread equally delicious with the Walnuts.
