This bread gets rave reviews everytime I bake it, and I have used this same recipe for over 25 years. (Even though the directions say "cool completely" we usually have to have a slice smeared with butter while it is still hot) Yummm


3 eggs
1 1/2 cups vegetable 0il
2 cups chopped unpared apples
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 tsp vanilla
3 1/3 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking power
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp cloves
2/3 cups raisins
2/3 cups chopped nuts (optional)


Heat oven to 350. Grease and flour 2 loaf pans (9x5x3"). Beat eggs, oil, apples, sugar and vanilla on low speed, scaping bowl occasionally, 1 minute. Add flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and cloves. Beat on low speed, scaping bowl occasionaly, until moistened, about 15 seconds. Beat on medium speed 45 seconds. Stir in nuts and raisins. Spread in pans. Bake until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean, 55-60 minutes. Cool 10 minutes; remove from pans. Cool completely before slicing. Wrap tightly in alluminum foil and refrigerate leftover bread.
