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!
