Apple Orange Bread

I know this is called "bread", but it seems like it should
be in the "cake" forum, since it's sweet

Apple Orange Bread:

4 c. AP flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1-1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
2 large apples, unpeeled, cored and quartered
1 large orange, unpeeled
1-1/2 c. orange essence craisins
2/3 c. shortening
2 c. sugar
4 eggs
1 tsp. lemon extract (or you can use orange)
2/3 c. orange juice
1 c. chopped pecans

Preheat to 350. Mix together all dry ingredients. Set aside. In a blender or food processor, chop apples oranges and craisins till finely chopped. Set aside. Cream together shortening and sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each one. Beat in extract and keep beating till the mixture is fluffy. Add a little of the dry ingredients, then some orange juice and continue till all is mixed in. Stir in fruits and nuts.
This will fill 3 8x4x2 loaf pans. Bake 50-60 minutes, or till a toothpick comes out clean when tested in the middle of the loaf. Cool in pans 10 minutes, then put onto wire racks to complete the cooling.

This would be extra special if you made little sandwiches out of them, using a butter/orange zest/sugar spread.
