Baking With Friends: Applesauce Oatmeal Bread (+ Video)

Applesauce Oatmeal Bread

Quick breads are always a huge hit with my kitchen helper and when I saw this recipe for Applesauce Oatmeal Bread I knew I had to try it. It was an instant success and I have made it about a dozen times since. Not only is this bread delicious, it’s a perfect recipe to make with more than one kitchen helper, which is exactly what we did during a recent play date. One of my kitchen helper’s classmates was over and loves to bake as well. This recipe has a perfect division of labor, as seen in the video below, one mixed the dry ingredients, while the other mixed up the wet ingredients. They came together at the end with the last two ingredients and ran off to play while it baked. Once the bread was out of the oven we were able to enjoy a mini food photography session too. My kitchen helper’s classmate wants to be a photographer when she grows up, so of course I couldn’t resist showing her a few tricks.
