This Snackin' Apple cake did not last long in my house. In fact I had to bake a second one. I drive fir Meals on Wheels for my county here is Michigan and shared this cake with some of my clients and they loved it too.
This Applesauce Snackin’ Cake makes a great afternoon snack with a glass of milk or cup of coffee. How many times have you ended up with one cup of applesauce in the refrigerator that is about to spoil and you don’t know what to do with it? I usually make this cake because it is quick and easy and I hate to see anything ruin. This cake is so moist it really doesn’t need a frosting.
4 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup applesauce
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ginger
1/8 teaspoon allspice
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1 cup raisins
1 cup nuts (I use walnuts, you can use whatever you like)
Whisk together butter, sugar, egg, applesauce and vanilla in a large bowl. In another bowl whisk together flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger, allspice and nutmeg. Pour the flour mixture into the first mixture and mix well with a spoon. Fold in raisins and nuts. Spray a 9 x 9 inch baking dish and add batter. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven 35 to 40 minutes testing for doneness as ovens vary. Remove and let cool. Can frost with your favorite frosting or just dust with powdered sugar on top. Enjoy!
Note: You could double this recipe, too.
