We are slowly getting used to eating flax seed in our diet. Needless to say, I am sneaking in as much flax seed as possible through my baking experiments! This Apple Bread, however popular it might be is new to our family. And the first time I made it, we were floored! I have never tried baking apples and so this was a pleasant surprise for me when it turned out so good. As soon as S walked in from work, he smelt the aroma and raised a brow when I told him that it was Apple Bread. He wouldn't even wait for the bread to cool down - he went ahead and tried slicing it. Thats when it crumbled a little bit but we didn't mind as we finished it in a single sitting (No guilt - there was very little fat in there and we skipped dinner of course!!!) . My little one loved it very much too! Coming to the recipe part of it, I was inspired by a recipe here . I made a few small changes and most importantly I made it vegan. 

The slices were cut too soon ..I guess...

Ingredients - 

Apples diced 2 cups
Bread Flour 1 1/2 cups
Baking Powder 1 1/2 tsp
Baking Soda 1/2 tsp
Salt 1/4 tsp

Sugar 1/2 cup
Applesauce Cinnamon flavored 1/2 cup
Water 1/2 cup + 3 Tbsp
Flaxseeds 1 Tbsp
Canola Oil 2 Tbsp

Note - Bread flour can be substituted with All purpose flour in this recipe.

Method Of Preparation - 

In a mixing bowl, add the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt and mix them withour any lumps.

In a spice grinder, powder the flaxseed and mix it in 3 Tbsp of water.

Preheat the oven to 350F.

In a blender, add sugar, oil, apple sauce, flaxseed paste and blend well.

Slowly add the wet mixture to the dry ingredients. Make a soft batter mixing it gently.

Fold in the diced apples until all the apple pieces are well incorporated in the flour.

In a loaf pan lined with parchment paper, pour the batter and evenly spread it.

Bake in the middle rack of the oven for about an hour. I took it out in exactly 62 min.
