Ingredients

1 cup vegetable shortening
soft
*
1 ½ cups brown sugar
firmly packed
*
4 large eggs
2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
sifted
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 ½ teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
¾ teaspoon cloves
¾ teaspoon nutmeg
2 cups applesauce
sweetened canned
1 ½ cups oats, quick cooking
1 cup raisins, seedless
1 cup dates
pitted, cut in small pieces
1 cup candied cherries

Directions

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 ½ 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 8½ inch x 4½ inch x 2½ inches loaf pans.

Bake in preheated very slow oven (275℉/140℃) 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.
