"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
Dr. Adrian Rogers 1931-2005

Applesauce Bread

Sandra in NZ asked for my recipe for applesauce bread, and here it is:
Applesauce Bread
Makes 4 loaves
Blend together
2 ½ cups sugar
5 eggs
3 1/8 cup applesauce
1 ¼ cup oil (I use olive oil)
½ cup milk

Sift and Add
5 cups flour
2 ½ teaspoons baking soda
1 ¼ teaspoons baking powder
1 ¼ teaspoons cinnamon
½ teaspoons nutmeg(rounded)
½ teaspoons allspice

Mix together then fold in 1 ¼ cup chopped nuts. Make topping mix of ½ cup chopped nuts, ½ cup brown sugar, and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Sprinkle over tops of unbaked loaves. Bake in four well greased loaf pans at 350 F(176 C) for 50-55 minutes.

(my notes: I found this in a pioneer cookbook…I do not make the topping as it is perfect without. I also use round or fun shapes with a few of the loaves…)

This is by far one of the best recipes for unleavened bread that I have ever tried! The kids consider this a snack and even have it crumbled with vanilla ice cream! I love the smells while baking and especially love that it reminds me of Thanksgiving and Christmas with the flavor! So enjoy, oh and the photo of my applesauce bread is in the previous post with my fair entries:) Thank you Sandra for asking!

I printed this out and will have to try it. I make an applesauce cake every Christmas that we like so I know we'll like the bread. I like that it makes 4 loaves!!!

Sounds good - I'll have to try it.

As far as stromboli vs calzones, I'm not sure of the difference. I know the pizza places sell both in our area, so I assume there is some difference ... I just don't know what it is LOL!!

I linked to this recipe in yesterday's post!

Copied, saved, printed -- will have to figure how to divide it by 4 since there's only one of me, but it sounds wonderful. And I have plenty of applesauce and baking nuts!

Thank you SO much!
