Applesauce Raisin Spice Loaf

In case you haven’t heard, we’ve officially moved to Alaska to finish Jake’s house here. We spent weeks before leaving doing all the packing and trying to use up the plethora of ingredients and food items in the house in Tucson. This recipe from “The Garden of Vegan” cookbook was a great way to use up some of our flour and some of my large jar of applesauce. This recipe is vegan, and very easily so. In baking, eggs are largely used as a binding agent. Applesauce does the same thing but has the added benefit of adding apple flavor to your baked goods. I really don’t know why anyone bothers to use eggs when they could use applesauce instead and make their baking taste even more flavorful. Anyway, this was a really moist and amazing loaf.  Highly recommend making this for your family!
