Another recipe - Apple Loaf Cake

Hiya, it's Cath here :) Thought i'd give you a little recipe today. I make this all the time and it never lasts more than 48hrs, very scrummy! And it's really, really quick and easy to make too! Heres the recipe - 1 Egg 8floz(250ml) Bottled or Homemade apple sauce 2 oz(55g) melted butter or Marg 3 3/4oz(110g)Dark brown sugar 1 3/4oz(50g)Caster sugar 10oz(285g)Plain flour 2 tsps Baking powder 1/2 tsp Bicarbonate of soda 1/2 tsp salt 1 tsp Ground cinnamon 1/2 tsp Ground Nutmeg 2 1/2oz(70g) currants or raisins 2oz(55g) Chopped pecans or walnuts 1. Preheat the oven to 350f/180c/Gas mark 4. Line a 9x5 in loaf tin wih greaseproof paper and grease. 2. Break the egg into a bowl and beat lightly. Stir in the apple sauce, butter and both sugars. Set aside. 3. In another bowl sift together the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Fold the dry ingredients into the apple mixture in 3 batches. 4. Stir in the currants/raisins and the nuts. 5. Pour into the prepared tin and bake until a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean(about an hour). Let stand for 10 mins. Turn out onto a rack and let cool. And if you want to turn recipes and cooking into scrapbooking why not scrap your recipes and turn it inot a Recipe Journal which is what I am planning on doing!
