Applesauce Cake

Applesauce cake is my grandmother’s recipe. She used to use chunky home-made applesauce but smooth applesauce will work just as well.  It’s delicious either way. Serve with vanilla ice cream.


3/4 cup sugar

1/2 cup melted butter

1 egg

1 cup applesauce

1 1/4 cup flour

1/2 tsp salt

2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp nutmeg

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp allspice

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1 cup raisins

1/4 cup chopped mixed nuts


Mix sugar, butter, egg and applesauce together. 

Mix dry ingredients together. 

Fold wet ingredients into dry and mix until just incorporated.

Bake in a greased 8×8 pan at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for approximately 20 minutes

Try Chunky Cranberry Applesauce in the recipe.
