How was your long holiday weekend? Mine was quite lovely and relaxing. I spent time with friends, took Dexter to the stream so he could swim, ate ice cream, what could be better?
On Sunday I woke up to the sound of thunder and new I was going to have to make some alternate plans for the day. Originally I was going to go for a long bike ride and then work in the garden but it wasn’t meant to be. It rained (and I mean RAINED) the entire day so all of my outdoor plans had to take a back seat. So what to do when your stuck inside? Bake!
I whipped up this blueberry applesauce loaf with things I had on hand and it turned out delicious. Not overly sweet, nice and soft and crumbly, it was fantastic warm out of the oven and just as good the following day.
Blueberry Applesauce Loaf
2c flour (I use a mix of whole wheat and white)
1/2c sugar (even less if your blueberries are good and ripe)
1 c applesauce
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
pinch of salt
dash of cinnamon
dash of nutmeg
blueberries (I always say the more the better but do whatever works for you)
Set the oven to 350, mix the wet with the dry and bake for 55 to 60 minutes. Easy peasy.
