  Categories: Quick bread, Usenet
       Yield: 1 loaf
  
     1/2 c  Butter
       1 c  Sugar
       3    Eggs
       2 c  Flour, all-purpose
       1 t  Baking powder
     1/2 t  Salt
     1/2 t  Cinnamon, ground
     1/4 t  Nutmeg, ground
       1 c  Applesauce
     1/4 c  Dark molasses (treacle)
       1 c  Raisins
     1/2 c  Nuts, chopped
  
   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. Yield: 1 large loaf.
   
   : Difficulty:  easy.
   : Time:  15 minutes preparation, 1 hour baking, 30 minutes cooling.
   : Precision:  measure the ingredients.
