Apple and Raspberry Bread

I don't always feel like rambling. Sometimes I just want to share a recipe... this is one of those times.
I'm not sure where the original recipe came from, but this is just a yummy, moist and relatively healthy recipe that I really enjoy and so do my lads. 
In fact, I'm eating a piece right now smothered with butter (optional but everything is better with butter) with a cup of tea. Bliss.

Apple and Raspberry Bread

2 cups plain flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1/3 cup olive oil
1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
2-3 red apples, grated
1 cup raspberries (I used frozen)
A few walnuts, for sprinkling on top

Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees Celsius and line a loaf tin.
Sift flour, baking powder and cinnamon into a bowl and add sugar, whisking together to loosen any sugar lumps. 
In a jug, whisk eggs, oil and vanilla until combined. Add to dry ingredients with grated apple and mix until combined - it is quite a dry, thick mixture but just make sure it's well combined.
Gently fold in raspberries. 
Spoon into loaf tin and push walnuts into the top. Bake for 1 hour or so and allow to cool before attempting to slice. 
Serve with butter if you're awesome like me.
