Measure Ingredient
2½ cup Unbleached all-purpose flour

Date: Fri, 7 Jun 1996 08:11:30 -0700 From: bwatson@... (Bethann Watson) I tried this recipe from Sarah Schlesinger's cookbook "500 Fat-Free Recipes," and it is very good. I've had a slice of this bread and a cup of nonfat yogurt for breakfast the last few days. The bread is also a good evening snack. Thought others in the group would like it. BTW, I love Sarah Schlesinger's cookbook--heard about it on this list, too! Every recipe I have tried has come out very well. I heartily recommend it.

Combine the flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, and cinnamon. Stir in the applesauce, egg whites, and milk. Pour into a nonstick loaf pan, or a pan lined witha baking pan liner or lightly sprayed with vegetable cooking spray. Let stand for 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 325F. Bake bread for 50 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in the center of the bread comes out dry. Cool in pan for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool. Makes 10 servings.

You could probably add chopped, dried fruit to this recipe without any problems. Also, soy or rice milk (or even spice tea) could probably be substituted for the skim milk. To make it more of a spice bread, next time I will reduce the cinnamon to 2½ teaspoons and add ¼ teaspoon nutmeg, ⅛ teaspoon cloves, and ⅛ teaspoon cardamom.
