I like this for breakfast. Very sweet and soft.
2 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/8 tsp. cloves
1/3 cup shortening
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup dark molasses
2/3 cup milk
2 cup diced apples (2 large apples)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
Sift together flour, baking soda, salt and spices. Set aside. Cream together shortening and sugar, add eggs, one at a time, beating well. Add molasses, mix well. Add flour mixture alternately with milk. Fold in apples and nuts.
Pour into greased and floured 9x5 inch pan and bake at 350 degrees F. for 1 hour. Cool on rack for 10 minutes and remove from pan. Cool thoroughly on rack. Wrap in foil and store overnight before slicing.
