Preheat the oven to 180C/350F. Grease a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan and line it with parchment paper. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, add your flour, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, baking soda, and baking powder, and mix well. In a separate bowl, whisk together your oil, apple cider vinegar, applesauce, and water until combined.
Combine your wet and dry ingredients together. Fold through your raisins/nuts of choice. Transfer to the loaf pan and bake for 50-60 minutes, or until a skewer comes out just clean.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool in the pan for 10 minutes, before carefully transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
