I made this tonight because I'm in the mood for fall and I wanted something with applesauce in it. This will not disappoint.
You can bake this in the suggested tube or bundt pan or you can bake it in two loaf pans or six of the mini loaf pans.
Easy Applesauce Cake (Ginger's Recipe)
2 cups granulated sugar
1 1/2 cups sweetened applesauce
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup shortening (Crisco)
2 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon cloves
1/2 teaspoon allspice
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup raisins, dusted with 1 teaspoon flour
1/2 cup chopped walnuts, optional - I don't use
1. Blend together in large bowl of mixer the suger, applesauce, water, shortening, and eggs. When blended, add flour, soda, cinnamon, cloves, allspice, salt, and baking powder. Mix well. By hand, fold in the raisins and nuts, if desired.
2. Pour into a greased and floured tube pan or Bundt pan. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 60 minutes or until the cake tests done.
Cool about 20 minutes before removing from the pan. Dust with confectioner's sugar or use your favorite glaze. Also good with caramel frosting.
***This freezes absolutely wonderfully...the cake I had frozen for many
months is just as moist and flavorful as when I put it into the freezer.
**Make now and
freeze for the holidays.
