Revisiting an old favorite

Carrot, Apple, Raisin Bread is one of my very favorite quick breads. I make it into one loaf and a dozen muffins. Here it is in the form of cupcakes I made for R.'s birthday last year. Today I revisited it a bit, amped it up a notch. I'm calling it Apple Harvest Bread.

Original recipe with my new variation in bold:
3 eggs
1 cup oil 1/2c oil, 1/2c apple cider
1 cup sugar
1 tart apple, grated 2 large apples, blended up in the food processor, almost to mush
2 large carrots, grated
1 cup raisins, soaked then drained
1tbs vanilla
1tbs cinnamon

2 cups whole wheat flour 1c whole wheat, 1c white flour
1tsp salt
1tsp baking soda
1.25tsp baking powder
1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts. went with walnuts, about 2c

It is SO super moist, and very apple-y. It got the toddler seal of approval. I think I like pecans better than walnuts, but they certainly don't take away from the muffins one bit.
