Apple Raisin Spiced Bread

Fall is in the air!  With the change to cooler weather, the boys and I made our annual hike out to the mountain orchard to pick some apples!

   

We picked three bags FULL of apples – about 25 lbs of apples in all!  In season right now are Golden Delicious and Jonagold (which are a cross between a Golden Delicious and a Jonathan apple).  So, back home I am breaking out the apple recipes and the house smells delicious!  One of my favorites is Apple Raisin Spiced Bread.

 

Ingredients:

1 1/3 cups all purpose flour

3/4 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp ground nutmeg

1/4 tsp ground cloves

1 cup sugar

1/2 cup vegetable oil

2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla

2 cups chopped apples

1/2 cup raisins

1/2 cup pecans

2 tsp sugar mixed with 1/4 tsp cinnamon – topping

 

First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Next, chop up two medium-large apples, which equals about 2 cups.

 In a large bowl, beat together the 2 eggs and the tsp of vanilla.  Then add the cup of sugar and the 1/2 cup oil and mix well.

Add the cut apples, raisins and pecans to the sugar mix and stir.

Now it is time to add the dry ingredients, including all spices.

Mix up well until all dry ingredients have been combined.

Pour the batter into individual loaf pans or into one large loaf pan.  Bake at 350 for approximately 30 minutes for mini loaves or 60 minutes for large loaf.

Once cooked through, remove from oven and baste with a little bit of melted butter.  Sprinkle the sugar/cinnamon mix over top to give a light coating.

Allow to cool and serve!  Makes a great quick breakfast or a healthy after school snack!

Any extras can be placed in individual resealable plastic bags and stored in the freezer for a later date.
