Extra Special Apple Oatmeal Bread!

Happy Sunday Pink Hippos!  Thought I would start.. or end your week depending on how you look at it with this delicious Apple Oatmeal bread recipe!  We made this to bring to our Church's Fifth Sunday Brunch.
1 1/3 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
4 eggs
juice from 2 oranges
zest from 1 orange
3 1/2 cups flour
1 cup oatmeal
1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 large apples peeled and chopped
1 cup raisins
1 cup chopped pecans
Cream butter and sugars. 
Then add eggs one at a time until fully incorporated.
   Add juice and apples and continue to mix.
In separate bowl combine flour, oatmeal, zest, baking soda and salt.
Mix into wet ingredients. 
Fold in raisins and pecans.
Bake 1 hour at 350 degrees.  Makes 3 loafs (I made 2 large loaves and two minis for the kids to take to school!)
Remember an apple a day keeps the doctor away.. and eaten this way makes it much more FUN!
