This bread is a favorite in our family. It's very festive and is a wonderful breakfast bread or great for a snack. We have enjoyed this recipe many times and I even sell loaves throughout the holidays! *Eat plain or top with powdered sugar and cinnamon or even cream cheese icing and walnuts! Delish either way =)

    In a bowl, mix the butter and sugar until smooth and creamy. Beat in the eggs one at a time.
  • 4
    In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon. Mix into the butter mixture until moistened. Stir in the apples, syrup, cranberries and raisins. Transfer to the prepared loaf pan.

    Bake 1 hour in the preheated oven, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in the pan for 15 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
