Apple Bread with Nuts and Raisins -Loaf Pan Recipe

While most folks are posting an abundance of pumpkin recipes right about now... I'm feeling the love for apples (but don't worry, I will be sharing a few pumpkin recipes to keep things interesting:@) One of the things I really loved about this Apple Bread recipe, it's recommended that you bake it but wrap in plastic wrap and not serve it until the next day. Great for Sunday dinner! The original called for a streusel topping, I chose to keep mine plain, we all felt it was plenty sweet enough, ~and~ plenty tasty enough as is! Don't hesitate to give this great 'any time of day' cake a try folks, I think you'll be happy.

I also wanted to mention how pleased I am with this $5.97 Wilton loaf pan I picked up at Walmart!
I have more than my share of expensive cake pans, but things pop out of this one beautifully-it's a great purchase:@)

Apple Bread with Nuts and Raisins-adapted from The Iowa Housewife
1/2 C butter, softened
1 C sugar-I cut back a couple Tblsp
1/4 C buttermilk or sour milk-I used Half and Half
2 tsp baking powder
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 C A/P flour
1/2 tsp salt
2 C shredded, peeled apples (toss with a little lemon juice to prevent browning)-mine were 1/4" diced
1 C chopped walnuts or pecans-I used about 1/3 C pecans
1/2 C golden raisins-I had regular raisins and used about 1/3 C
Optional Streusel Nut Topping-click here for the streusel recipe
  1. Grease bottom and up 1/2" sides of 9x5x3" loaf pan.
  2. In large bowl, beat butter for 30 seconds. Add sugar and mix until well combined.
  3. Add buttermilk and baking powder, mix until combined.
  4. Add eggs and vanilla, mix until combined.
  5. Add flour and salt, mix in by hand. Fold in apples, nuts and raisins by hand.
  6. Spoon batter into pan and spread evenly (it will be thick).
  7. Sprinkle with topping (if using) and bake at 350 degrees for 60-65 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near center comes out clean.
  8. Cool in pan for 10 minutes. Remove from pan and cool completely.
