1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
3 large eggs
2 cups flour -- all-purpose
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon -- ground
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg -- ground
1 cup applesauce
1/4 cup treacle -- dark molasses
1 cup raisins
1/2 cup nuts -- chopped

Preparation / Directions:

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. NOTES: * 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. Time: 15 minutes preparation, 1 hour baking, 30 minutes cooling.
