This applesauce cake recipe is so tasty. My mom said my grandma used to make it and she loved it. I tried it for the first time a few weeks ago and I agree!


1/2 cup of shortening
2 cups of sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups of applesauce
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon cloves
1 1/2 teaspoons of baking soda
1 cup raisins
1/2 to 1 cup walnuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Preparing The Batter
Mix the shortening, sugar, and eggs together.
Then add the applesauce and mix again.

Adding the Dry Ingredients
In a separate bowl, mix the flour, salt, cinnamon, cloves, and baking soda together.
Then add the flour mixture to the applesauce mixture.
Add the raisins and mix well.
Coat the loaf pans with cooking spray. Fill each pan with the applesauce batter.
If you want walnuts in one loaf pan or in both loaf pans, you can add them now.
Place in the oven. Bake for 40 minutes.
Test the center of the applesauce cake with a toothpick to make sure it is done.
