Take your recipe up a notch with the simple addition of fresh apple chunks and plump raisins to make this wonderful Apple Raisin Amish Friendship Bread submitted by Kitchen Friend Saskia Bau.
This is a great recipe to use the stray apple sitting around in the fruit drawer. Doubling up on the amount of cinnamon in this recipe gives it an extra kick.
Kitchen Friend Saskia Baur got creative with her add-ins: “Sift the dry ingredients together to prevent lumps in the batter, and use 1½ cups of nuts to help with the moisture from the apples. I also baked my loaves for 45 minutes instead of the recommended 60. The loaves were still beautifully moist after seven days. All my family and friends who tasted it, loved it.”
