  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease two 8x4 inch loaf pans. In a small mixing bowl, cover the raisins with hot water; let stand for 10 minutes and drain. Sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon, set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine apple juice, egg and oil; beat until well mixed, then stir in the applesauce. Gradually stir in the sifted ingredients until smooth. Add the drained raisins; mixing just enough to evenly distribute. Pour the batter into the prepared pans.
  3. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean. Cool loaf in the pan for 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

This was good but was only enough to make one loaf.

This is tasty, but has a slightly strange texture and is a bit crumbly. A word of advice – I followed the directions and sifted the dry ingredients. DO NOT sift the rye flour. My sifter is now u...

This is excellent tasting and very healthy, but it's definitely a bit on the crumbly side. Instead of the raisins I put in two cups of diced unpeeled apples. I also used apple pie spice (2 tsp) ...

Really good! I did 1 loaf and it took 55 minutes to cook.
