Super-Easy Apple-Raisin Quick Bread

 I made this yummy apple-raisin quick bread this morning and unfortunately, my husband and I have practically eaten the whole thing before I thought of how useful it would be to get the recipe down here. I'm sorry. I know it would have been nice to have seen the whole loaf. Maybe the next time I make it (there will be a next time) I will remember to photograph the whole loaf.

In the meantime, here is the recipe:


  • 3 cups of self-raising flour (see below)
  • 2 cups (16 oz) apple sauce, sweetened
  • l teaspoon cinnamon (optional)
  • 1/2 to 1 cup Thompson's raisins (or other raisins)
Canadians don't often use self-raising flour. It is so handy to have on hand for biscuits, and the like. Here is a recipe:
For every one cup of flour (all-purpose), use 1 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder and 1/2 salt.
I want to make 6 cups of self-raising flour so include:
6 cups of flour, 9 teaspoons of baking powder, and 3 teaspoons of salt.

I whisked the above well and stored the additional quantity in a plastic Ziplock bag in the fridge.

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the flour and cinnamon using three or four strokes across the bowl. Mix in the raisins
  3. Add in the apple sauance, and with a spatula, Mix thoroughly to combine.
  4. Line a 8"x4" bread pan with parchment (or use a silicone pan).
  5. Spoon in the dough and smooth, evening the corners.
  6. Put into the oven and bake at 375 degrees F. for 45 minutes.
  7. Leave the bread in the pan until totally cool, or until cool enough to take out and place on a rack.
  8. Slice and enjoy!
This quick bread has a nice even crumb similar to yeast breads and the fragrance is very apple-y. It is soft and tastes delicious! Try it!
