  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 8x4x2-inch loaf pan.
  2. Mix flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, nutmeg, and cloves in a bowl.
  3. Beat the butter and sugar with an electric mixer in a separate large bowl until smooth. Add the egg and apple butter; continue beating until smooth. Mix in the flour mixture until just incorporated. Fold in the raisins and walnuts; mixing just enough to evenly combine. Pour into prepared loaf pan.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 40 to 50 minutes. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

Tastes great! Took longer to cook in my oven.

AWESOME!! Was very moist and had great flavor that reminds me of all the things I love about the fall. Thank you for the great recipe

Very easy to make and yummy. Perfect for Fall. Accidentally made a loaf with 1/4 cup of apple butter because I misread the ingredients. Still turned out okay but pretty flat, more like brownies....

I added half a teaspoon of almond extract to this and it was transformative. I wouldn't add more than that -- almond extract is powerful stuff, and more than half a teaspoon could turn this loaf...

I have a lot of homemade pear butter on hand, and I've been looking for recipes to use it up. This worked great, which is fortunate because I went right ahead with a double batch for the first ...
