Gravitybread, the recipe and story

What is Gravitybread? That is what most people asked me each time I told them my email. To be honest, I was a bit embarrassed by it because the website my husband and I originally created was a bit amateur, you might say. Which is what motivated me to be proud of Gravitybread, change the website and use it as a way to display my favorite recipes, share advice and discuss how well you can incorporate language into mealtime with your children.

Anyway, to get back to what Gravitybread is. Gravitybread is a quick bread that I created when I first met my husband and started to really enjoy baking. I also love bananas. My husband likes anything to do with gravity (especially going very fast, specifically mountain biking and skiing) and I like bread. There you have it!  We thought that was a good name for the website and wanted to create an actual bread to go with the website.

I began playing around with an applesauce quick bread with some yummy additions.  After many trials, the bread recipe that I came up with was healthy, delicious and satisfying. I will modify this recipe here and there, especially for my son who cannot have nuts.  Below is the original recipe, feel free to modify it as needed.

The bread is excellent when it comes out of the oven but even better a day later!
