applesauce bread with cream cheese frosting

This week has been rainy. Whenever it rains I feel like baking. Since fall is here now, I opted for something autumn-y. Anything with pumpkin, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, nutmeg... you get the picture. 

Applesauce Bread

1/4 cup butter, at room temperature
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 t. salt
1 egg
1 cup applesauce
1 1/2 cups flour
1 t. baking soda
1/2 t. cinnamon
1/2 t. cloves

Blend the butter, sugar, salt and egg until light and fluffy. Mix the remaining dry ingredients together in a separate bowl. Alternately add dry ingredients and applesauce to the butter blend. Pour into a loaf pan. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Cream Cheese Frosting

4 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 T. butter, softened
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/4 t. vanilla

Blend it all together and spread on your cooled cake!

Have a fabulous weekend!
