Another great recipe passed on to me by my husband's grandma. I usually don't make bread, but this one is a keeper.

Tagged Beverage Tag Holiday 2008 This is very good bread. I like that it is a quick bread and the apples and raisins make me feel as though it is healthy! I usually make a banana type bread but his was great for breakfast or the sweet tooth. I also made this recipe a 2nd time for muffins. DH liked them to take with him for breakfast as he has given up eating donuts. :) I used wheat flakes first time and bran flakes the 22nd time, subbed 1/4 cup splenda for the sugar, and low fat applesauce in 2nd batch. Both tasted great! This is a keeper!
