Total Time

Prep: 20 min. Bake: 40 min. + cooling

Makes

2 loaves (12 slices each)

“This bread is better if you make it the day before you plan to serve it,” says Judith Malhotra of Toledo, Ohio. “That gives it time for the flavors to blend.”

Ingredients

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 egg
  • 1-3/4 cups reduced-fat eggnog
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 cup golden raisins
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and nutmeg. In a small bowl, whisk the egg, eggnog, applesauce and oil. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in raisins and pecans.
  2. Transfer to two 8x4-in. loaf pans coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks.
