This is the last recipe I promised you from Friend Carol that she served us when we met at her house for a fun afternoon of Farkle recently. She had on out with the light lunch she was offering us and I really thought it was our dessert. That's why I was so surprised when about mid-afternoon at the end of one of the games, she asked if we wanted to break for dessert. (Don't get me wrong, the dessert was delicious, but I could have stopped after this Apple Butter Bread.)


1/2       cup margarine, softened
1           cup packed light brown sugar (Carol used 1/2 cup of Splenda Brown Sugar Blend)
1           egg
3/4       cup milk
2          teaspoons baking soda
2          cups flour
1           teaspoon ground cinnamon
1           teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2       teaspoon ground cloves
1           cup apple butter
1           cup chopped pecans
1/2       cup raisins

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray loaf pans with non-stick cooking spray.

Cream margarine and brown sugar.

Add egg to mixture and beat well.

Combine milk and baking soda.

Combine flour and spices.

Add flour mixture to creamed mixture alternately with the milk mixture, beginning and ending with flour.

Stir in apple butter, pecans, and raisins.

Divide batter between loaf pans. (Carol served us bread she had made in mini loaf pans and then frozen. Not sure exactly how many loaves it will make.)

Bake for about 45 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

Cool in pan 5 minutes. 

Remove to wire rack and cool completely.

Loaves do freeze really well. 

I hope you checked out the other two recipes Carol shared with me from the last two days.
