From Jane Brody’s Good Food Book. Excellent with White or Red Ipocras.
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup unbleached flour
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats (quick or regular)
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats, coarsely ground in a food processor
  • 4 tsps baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup applesauce (preferably unsweetened)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tbsps neutral olive oil or melted butter

Place the raisins in a small bowl. Add the hot water to cover and let the raisins soak. In a large bowl, combine the flours, oats, and spices together.

In a medium bowl, beat together the egg, brown sugar, applesauce, water and oil until they are well- blended. Drain the raisins and stir into the applesauce mixture and then add this misture to the flour mixture, stirring the ingredients just to moisten them. Pour the batter into a greased 9 x 5 x 3 inch loaf pan.

Bake the bread in a preheated 350ºF oven for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean. Let the bread cool in the pan for 10 minutes and then turn it out onto a rack to cool. Serve with butter, cream cheese, or apple butter.
