Why I Love This Recipe

Mom's Favorite Applesauce Cake from the 1950's. She made this for us every other Sunday, especially in the winter, and we would eat it right out of the oven. It is really, really good.

Ingredients You'll Need

3/4 C. raisins
1/2 C. boiling water
1-1/2 C. brown sugar
1 tsp. salt
2 eggs, beaten
1-1/2 C. applesauce
1 tsp. each of cinnamon, cloves and allspice (cloves are optional)
2-1/2 C. flour
3/4 C. chopped walnuts
2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 C. shortening


Add raisins to boiling water and set aside.

In mixing bowl, beat shortening, sugar, salt, spices and eggs until creamy smooth and fluffy.

Scrape bowl often.

Blend in applesauce, flour and walnuts.

Stir baking soda into undrained raisins, add to batter and mix well.

Pour into greased and floured square 9" pan and bake.

Temperature: 350 degrees

Time: 40 to 45 minutes
