RECIPE: Applesauce cake

Posted by kristlindgren ( on

I made this the other day and it was really good and very simple to make, a simple frosting could be used with this or none at all.

Applesauce cake
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter
1 egg
1 cup applesauce
1 tsp baking soda, dissolved in 1/2 cup warm water
1 cup raisins (opt)
1/4 cup chopped walnuts (opt)
1/2 tsp cloves
1/2-1 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 cups flour

Mix all together and bake at 350 degrees in a greased 9x13 pan. The original recipe does not give a time for baking, I started with 25-30 and checked it after that time.

I made this a couple days ago, without the raisins & it's very good. Thanks for posting it.

RE: RECIPE: Applesauce cake

I just checked my Great-Grandmothers hand written recipe for Applesauce Cake and it was identical to the one you posted with the exception that her recipe stipulated Presto, not flour.

She baked hers for 1 hour at 350 in a 9x13 pan.

I would love to know where this recipe originated. Any idea?
