Apple Sauce Bread

I always seem to have applesauce that needs using. Probably because it only lasts so long but it's always a better deal to buy it in bigger jars than you would typically use. At any rate here is a great recipe to use that apple sauce before it spoils. This was so good I'll be making it again for sure. Next time I'll also add raisins and walnuts. I may even make it into muffins because my husband loves to be able to grab something sweet and scurry off to munch. 

1/3 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/4 cups applesauce
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add the egg, vanilla and applesauce; mix well. Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg; gradually add to the creamed mixture just until combined. Pour into a greased 8-in. x 4-in. x 2-in. loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 60-65 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack.
