ABC Bread

Now that it's finally getting cooler here in North Texas, I'm spending a little more time in the kitchen making soups and baking. This bread is a favorite around here. It's easy, and the ingredients are usually in my pantry. Now don't freak out when you see how much oil or sugar is on the ingredient list. It's yummy, not guilt free. But it's gotta be nutritionally superior to a Twinkie, right? Oh, and the ABC is apple, banana, carrot, not like the ABC gum you were thinking of.

ABC Bread

1 cup oil

1 3/4 cup sugar

3 eggs

1 1/2 t. salt

1 1/2 t. baking powder

1 1/2t. baking soda

1/2 t. ground cloves

1/2 t. nutmeg

1 T. cinnamon

1 T. vanilla

3 cups flour

1 cup applesauce

1 cup grated carrots

1 cup mashed banana

Combine ingredients in order listed. Bake in two greased loaf pans at 350 for 45-50 minutes.

You can cut back on the oil and add more applesauce if you like, or use part brown sugar and heaping measurments of spices. Sometimes I sprinkle a cinnamon/sugar mixture on top before baking. I'm gonna go have a slice now with some hot Earl Grey.
