How to Make Apple Nut Raisin Loaf

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour a 9×5-inch loaf pan. (Can use the non-stick spray with flour added in)
  2. Mix brown sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl.
  3. Mix chopped apple, nuts and raisins together in another bowl.
  4. Beat white sugar and butter together in a bowl using an electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time, until incorporated; add vanilla extract.
  5. Combine flour and baking powder together in a bowl; stir into creamed butter mixture.
  6. Mix milk into batter until smooth. Pour half the batter into the prepared loaf pan; add half the apple/nut/raisin mixture and half the brown sugar mixture. Lightly pat apple mixture into batter.
  7. Pour the remaining batter over apple mixture layer; top with remaining apple mixture and brown sugar mixture. Lightly pat apples into batter; swirl brown sugar mixture through apples using a finger or spoon.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean, 35 to 45 minutes.
