King Arthur Flour is my go-to site to buy quality baking ingredients and fool-proof baking recipes. I splurge about 2~3 times a year and buy specialty ingredients for baking and cooking. My absolute favorite is their Vermont cheese powder that I use at least once a week to make mac & cheese for my kids. Another one of my favorite pantry ingredient from KAF is their pizza seasoning blend. It gives the homemade pizza that extra oomph and flavor.
I get KAF catalog every month and that is one magazine that I almost read from cover-to-cover, but all it has is their products and recipes. I make note of all the new additions to the product line-up, just so that I don’t miss out on them 🙂
Today’s bread is from one of the old KAF catalogs and I made it before we left on our vacation to India. I had some applesauce in the fridge that needed to be used up and this bread recipe came about. This bread is moist, slightly sweet and very flavorful.
