Applesauce Cake Recipe
From Diana Rattray,
Your Guide to Southern U.S. Cuisine.
* 2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted before measuring
* 1 cup sugar
* 1 teaspoon salt
* 1 teaspoon cinnamon
* 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
* 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
* 2 teaspoons baking soda
* 1 cup raisins
* 1 cup chopped walnuts
* 1/2 cup melted butter
* 2 cups applesauce
Directions for applesauce cake.
Into a mixing bowl, sift together the dry ingredients. Add raisins, chopped walnuts, melted butter, and applesauce. Beat until well blended. Pour batter into greased and floured 9-inch square pan or 11 3/4 x 7 1/2 baking pan.
Bake at 350° for 45 to 50 minutes. Cool and spread with cream cheese or butter frosting. If desired, decorate applesauce cake with grated orange peel and walnut halves.
I made it without the raisins and walnuts for toddlers! And I didn't put frosting on them cause I think they are yummy without!
