Aunt Pearl's Applesauce Cake

1 cup sugar
1 Tbls. cinnamon
1 teas. cloves
2 teas. baking soda
2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup oil
2 cups applesauce
1 cup raisins
Nuts if desired.

Mix sugar, cinnamon and cloves. Stir soda into applesauce and let foam in bowl. Add flour, oil and raisins. Add nuts if desired.

Bake at 350 about 45 minutes. We use a 9x 13 pan, ungreased. Also, if you mix the raisins into the flour when you add them, they will be coated and won't all sink to the bottom of the pan We never frosted this cake. It is very dense and moist. Dh's family has the same recipe and they always frost it with chocolate icing. This is what dh's b-day cake is every year.
I know i havent posted in a while. I have made this recipe a few times and just add a cup of shredded up carrot and it is really good everyone loves it.

Thumbs up

I like the idea of PrincessFiona60. For adding grated carrot and spices and using a bit of vegetable oil to get the right texture. Sounds it will work.

Aunt bea Made the applesauce cake in 8x8 pan size and use dried cranberries instead of raisins as that is what I had on hand.
GREAT !!!!! I just sprinkled it with confectionary sugar. I think a cream cheese or even a maple frosting would be great.
Its a keeper. thanks

Great!!!

Maple frosting or drizzle sounds nice.

I also think it would be good with a streusel topping added before it goes in the oven, sort of a coffee cake version!
