Here on our farm where we raise shorthorn cattle, I enjoy baking for my husband of over 40 years, our children and grandkids. And at the holidays, I make plenty of loaves of apple bread to share with friends.
- 2/3 cup shortening
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup orange juice
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup diced peeled apple
- 3/4 cup raisins
- 3/4 cup chopped pecans
- In a bowl, cream shortening and sugars. Add eggs and orange juice; beat well. Combine flour, baking soda and salt; stir into creamed mixture. Stir in apple, raisins and pecans. Pour into a greased 9-in. x 5-in. loaf pan. Bake at 350° for 55-60 minutes or until bread tests done. Cool in pan 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack. Yield: 1 loaf.
