This Apple Raisin Bread is one of my best treats and I love it best served warm with some salted butter spread and melted over the top. A sweet tasting bread with sugar, applesauce and honey in a dense dough with fresh diced apples and raisins and a sugar glaze drizzled on top. This bread is not only delicious but so simple to make and that’s the best part!
