Applesauce Cake

This is one of the recipes I mentioned in the original Things Remembered release. If it isn’t my favorite cake recipe, it’s right up there in the top three. I particularly love cakes that are so flavorful they don’t need frosting to set them off. Best of all, this one is from my mom.

 
 
Ingredients 

1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
3 eggs
1 cup sifted flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 cup milk
1 cup raisins
1 cup nuts
3/4 cup applesauce
1 cup rolled oats

Instructions 

Beat butter until creamy. Add sugar and beat until fluffy. Add eggs. Beat well. Sift together dry ingredients (they just need to be mixed together well if you don’t have a sifter) and add to creamed mixture alternately with milk. (Start with one third flour mixture, then one third milk, and continue until all ingredients are incorporated.) Stir—use a spoon, not a mixer—in raisins, nuts, applesauce, and oats. Pour batter into greased ring mold. It really cooks best in a ring mold (or angel food cake pan), so only substitute if you absolutely have to.

You can frost with a light glaze for presentation, but it isn’t necessary.

Cook at 350 degrees for 45 to 50 minutes. Test with a toothpick.
