Sweet, spicy quick bread with applesauce and raisins. Good for snacks.
INGREDIENTS (for 2 servings):
- 1/2 cup raisins
- 1 1/3 cups unbleached flour
- 2/3 cup rye flour
- 1/3 cup white sugar
- 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 3/4 cup apple juice
- 1 egg
- 1/3 cup vegetable oil
- 1/2 cup applesauce
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease two 8x4 inch loaf pans. In a small mixing bowl, cover the raisins with hot water; let stand for 10 minutes and drain. Sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon, set aside.
In a large bowl, combine apple juice, egg and oil; beat until well mixed, then stir in the applesauce. Gradually stir in the sifted ingredients until smooth. Add the drained raisins; mixing just enough to evenly distribute. Pour the batter into the prepared pans.
Bake for 35 to 40 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean. Cool loaf in the pan for 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
