Tasty & Healthy Applesauce Bread

“This is really good, and you'll be amazed at how low in fat and sugar it is! The recipe started as one from Sunset's Light and Healthy cookbook (1990), but I've tweaked it over the years, and I think I could get away with even less sugar. It's moist enough you don't need to spread it with anything -- just slice and enjoy. If you substitute craisins (sweeted dried cranberries), it works nicely for a holiday brunch or snack. Hope you like it.”
