  • 1 1/2 cups finely chopped apples
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 2 cups apple juice
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon

  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 5 eggs, beaten
  • 4 cups flaked bran cereal, coarsely crushed

  • In another medium bowl combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl combine Sue Bee® honey, brown sugar, oil and beaten eggs, mixing well to incorporate all ingredients.
  • Add the mixture of chopped apples and the mixture of flour, and fold in until all ingredients are well-blended. Mix in crushed bran cereal, then cover and refrigerate at least 3 hours.
  • Mixture will be thin but will thicken as bran cereal absorbs the liquid.
