Why I Love This Recipe

My mom liked applesauce cake, but her recipe was a bit bland. She really liked the changes I made. It became one of her favorites.

Ingredients You'll Need

1/2 C shortening
1 1/2 C brown sugar
1 egg
1 C thick applesauce
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground clove
1/4 tsp allspice
1 1/2 - 2 C flour


Preheat oven - 350'

Take a loaf pan and grease well - or spray generously (or line it with parchment paper, spray w/Pam)

Cream shortening, sugar and egg.

Dissolve soda in applesauce and add.

Using only 1/2 the flour - sift dry ingredients together and add.

Add enough more sifted flour to make a stiff batter.

Pour into lined loaf pan.

Bake - 350' - 50 - 60 minutes
