Ingredients And Procedures

1 c Shortening; soft

1 1/2 c Brown sugar, firmly packed

4 Eggs

2 1/2 c Sifted all-purpose flour

1 ts Baking powder

1/2 ts Soda

1 1/2 ts Salt

2 ts Cinnamon

3/4 ts Cloves

3/4 ts Nutmeg

2 c Sweetened canned applesauce

1 1/2 c Quaker Oats, uncooked

-- (quick or old-fashioned) 1 c Raisins

1 c Pitted dates

-- cut in small pieces 1 c Candied red cherries

-- cut in small pieces 1 c Chopped nutmeats

Beat shortening and sugar together until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Sift together 2 cups of the flour, baking powder, soda, salt and spices. Add alternately with applesauce to creamed mixture; blend well. Stir in oats. Combine remaining 1/2 cup flour with raisins, dates, cherries and nutmeats; stir to coat fruits and nutmeats evenly with flour. Stir into batter. Pour into 2 greased and waxed paper-lined 8-1/2" x 4-1/2" x 2-1/2" loaf pans.

Bake in preheated very slow oven (275 F.) about 2 hours. Set pan of hot water in bottom of oven while loaves are baking. Loosen edges; cool on wire rack about 10 minutes. Remove from pans; cool thoroughly. Wrap cooled bread and store one day before slicing.
