Ingredients:

- 2 2/3 cups flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon spice mix (I use cinnamon, clove, alspice, candied ginger, orange rind)
- 1 3/4 cups granulated sugar
- 1 cup vegetable oil
- 4 eggs, beaten
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 2 cups mixed apples, grated
- 2 cups mixed apples, processed
- 1 cup raisins, dried dates, dried currants, processed together with apples
- 1 cup chopped pecans, processed together with apples
- can add some sweet wine and/or honey to food processor to help puree the apples, dried fruit and nuts

Preparation:

In a bowl, combine flour, baking soda, salt, and spices. In a mixing bowl, combine sugar and oil. Beat in eggs and vanilla, then stir in chopped apples, raisins, and pecans. Add the dry ingredients and mix until well blended. Grease 2 9x5-inch loaf pans and line bottoms with waxed paper. Greased waxed paper. Pour batter into pans, smoothing the top with a spatula or spoon. Bake for 60-70 minutes at 325°, or until a wooden pick or cake tester inserted in center comes out clean.

Looks good Trent, but I'm wondering about 2 cups of processed apples. I have 2 food processors, but almost never use the big one, cause it's stored on the top shelf, way back, and it's a bitch to clean. I could use the smaller one and do a few batches, but what about using chunky applesauce. I make an apple coffeecake that uses both diced apples and applesauce. Would that work here?

I made 4 loaves of your pumpkin bread yesterday, btw. I love that recipe.

Chunky applesauce should work, but it MAY be a bit too soupy. An alternative would be only to use the grated apples. Regardless, you will want to chop or grind up the raisins and nuts fairly fine. But you can do them in batches. The fine grind allows them to absorb and hold moisture.

Hah, I too love that pumpkin bread! Especially with chocolate, per Scuba's comments!
