Apple-Raisin Bread

Today is stitch day with Audrey and Melissa. I made a loaf of this bread to drop off at Uncle Frank's. I imagine he's been given more than enough food these past few days, but this can be frozen until he needs it.

I have no idea where this recipe came from. Judging from my handwritten recipe card, I imagine I copied this one either before we were married or shortly afterward - 34 years this year!


1/3 cup soft butter
2/3 cup sugar
2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
2 eggs
3 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon lemon juice
2 cups gflour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups chopped, peeled apple
1 cup chopped raisins

Cream together butter, sugar, lemon peel, and cinnamon. Beat in eggs until light and fluffy. Beat in milk and lemon juice. Sift together dry ingredients and add to creamed mixture. Stir until moistened. Fold in the apple and raisins. Bake at 350 degrees in a 5x9 greased loaf pan - about an hour.

I'm going to put a simple confectioner's sugar glaze on top of this just for fun.
