1/2 c Butter
1 c Sugar
2 c Flour, all-purpose
1 ts Baking powder
1/2 ts Salt
1/2 ts Cinnamon, ground
1/4 ts Nutmeg, ground
1 c Applesauce
1/4 c Dark molasses (treacle)
1 c Raisins
1/2 c Nuts, chopped
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, cream butter and
sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well
after each addition.
Combine flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg; set aside.
Combine applesauce and molasses.
Add dry ingredients alternately with applesauce mixture to egg
mixture. Fold in raisins and nuts. Pour into a greased 9 1/4 x 5 1/4
x 2 3/4 inch loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees F. for 1 hour, or until a
toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes,
remove from pan and continue cooling on a wire rack.
* A simple, fragrant, apple-nut raisin bread — I found this recipe
on the back of a label for a baking loaf pan. It is easy to make and
because of the molasses it is very fragrant while baking. Yield: 1
