Applesauce Pecan Bread

Makes 1 loaf

Ingredients:

  • 1-1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast

  • 1/2 cup warm water

  • Pinch of granulated sugar

  • 1/2 cup applesauce

  • 1/2 cup vegan buttermilk

  • 1/4 cup canola oil

  • 2 to 3 cups white whole wheat flour

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans


Directions:

  1. In the bowl of a stand up mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine yeast, water, and sugar. Set aside for 5 minutes or until mixture becomes frothy.

  2. In a small saucepan over medium heat, whisk together applesauce, buttermilk, and oil. When mixture is warm, add it to the yeast mixture.

  3. In a large bowl, whisk together 2 cups of flour and salt. Add 1 cup flour to the applesauce mixture and blend on low to moisten.

  4. Add an additional 1 cup of flour to the mixture and blend on low until combined. Switch to dough hook.

  5. Turn mixer on medium speed and knead dough for 2 to 3 minutes. If dough seems wet and sticky, add 1/2 cup flour and continue to knead until dough becomes smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes.

  6. Dump dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead pecans into dough.

  7. Form dough into a ball and place in a large greased bowl, turning to coat. Cover bowl with a damp kitchen towel or plastic and set aside in a warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 1 hour.

  8. Punch dough down using your fist and dump dough onto a lightly floured surface. Roll dough into a rectangle the same length as the loaf pan you are going to use. 

  9. Spray loaf pan with cooking spray. Tightly roll dough into a loaf and place in the loaf pan. Cover and allow to rise for 45 minutes.

  10. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  11. Bake bread for 40 to 45 minutes or until bread sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom. Let cool on a wire rack for 30 minutes before slicing and serving.
