Walnut Raisin Loaf Recipe

Walnut Raisin Loaf - thelinksite.comI’m a real sucker for any recipe that contains walnuts and raisins. Throw in some apple and cinnamon and I’m in heaven! If you like these favours as much as I do you will love this Walnut Raisin Loaf recipe that I am sharing today.

This recipe was actually spotted a few years ago when I was using raisins in another recipe. The packet of Sunbeam raisins that I was using included the walnut raisin loaf recipe and it sounded so good that I had to give it a try. I was not disappointed – it was delicious!

I just love how it is packed with soft sweet raisins while having a delicious apple and cinnamon flavour. Topped off with the satisfying crunch of walnuts you have everything you need in a fruit and nut loaf! It is one of those tried and true recipes that you can rely on to satisfy a sweet tooth while also being packed with the goodness of real fruit and nuts

I haven’t made it for a while but recently, while looking for breakfast recipes ideas, this walnut raisin loaf came to mind. Once I had the idea in my head I couldn’t wait – I just had to make it. Thankfully I had all of the ingredients on hand and I got straight down to it. It is quite any easy recipe really and being a loaf it is great to be able to just slice off as many pieces as you need.

I have been enjoying this loaf for my breakfast this week. I find that it is yummy just on its own but you could spread it with some butter if you like and really indulge!
