Apple-molasses bread

Yield: 1 loaf

Measure Ingredient
½ cup Butter
1 cup Sugar
3 \N Eggs
2 cups Flour, all-purpose
1 teaspoon Baking powder
½ teaspoon Salt
½ teaspoon Cinnamon, ground
¼ teaspoon Nutmeg, ground
1 cup Applesauce
¼ cup Dark molasses (treacle)
1 cup Raisins

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 9¼ x 5 ¼ x 2 ¾ 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.
