I love squeezing in homemade breads and baked goods for dinner! I found a recipe in my Better Homes and Gardens book for nut bread and decided it would pair well with our scrambled eggs/sausage with a fruit salad. And once again, another great way to enjoy my walnuts. I'm going to be so sad when they are all gone!
I actually did something different in an attempt to make this bread a little lighter on the calories. I substituted applesauce for oil and I only used the egg white.
2 C flour
1 C sugar
1 Tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg, beaten
1 C milk
1/4 C oil (or applesauce!)
3/4 C chopped nuts that have been toasted
Preheat oven to 350. Grease bread pan.
Stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Make a well in the center and set aside.
In another bowl combine egg, milk, and oil. Add egg mixture all at once to flour mixture. Stir until just moistened. Fold in nuts.
Bake for 50-55 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
I liked this bread because it was very mild and had a gentle nutty taste!
