Difficulty: Easy
Prep Time: Fifteen Minutes
Total Time: Under an hour

1 1/2 cups warm water
1/3 cup vegetable oil (or melted
coconut oil)
2 tbsp instant yeast
1/2 cup white sugar
2 tsp salt
1 cup craisins
2 apples, peeled and grated
1 egg
5 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/8 tsp cloves
Whisk together water, vegetable oil, yeast, sugar, salt, craisins, apples and egg. Let sit in a warm place for 10 minutes.
Sift together flour, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves; add to wet ingredients and combine well to form a dough. Knead until it is smooth and elastic. Cover dough and let it rise in a warm place until the dough has doubled in size. Divide dough in half and place it in two loaf pans that have been sprayed with non-stick coating. Set aside in a warm place to rise again.
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Once loaves have risen to nearly double, place them in the oven and bake for about 40 minutes. The loaves will be a dark golden brown, lightweight and will sound hollow when you knock on the bottom. Remove from pans to cool on racks.
Yield: 2 loaves
