Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 2/3 cups packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup rolled oats (not instant)
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup dried cranberry
  • 1 cup raisin
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecan toasted
  • 1 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce

Method

In large bowl, beat butter with sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time. In separate bowl, whisk together all but 2 tbsp (25 mL) of the rolled oats, the all-purpose and whole wheat flours, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cloves. Add cranberries and pecans. Stir into butter mixture alternately with applesauce, making 3 additions of oat mixture and 2 of applesauce.

Scrape into parchment paper-lined or greased 9- x 5-inch (2 L) loaf pan. Sprinkle with reserved rolled oats. Bake in centre of 350°F (180°C) oven until cake tester inserted in centre comes out clean, about 65 minutes. Let cool in pan on rack for 10 minutes. Turn out onto rack and let cool completely. (Make-ahead: Wrap in plastic wrap and store at room temperature for up to 2 days or overwrap with heavy-duty foil and freeze for up to 1 month.)
