Applesauce Cake

I love applesauce and you put it into a cake with spices, you have a quick and easy surprise snack or dessert for dinner.

Applesauce Cake

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon banking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Pinch of ground cloves
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup golden raisins (optional)
1/4 cup finely chopped walnuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cream butter, brown sugar, and egg in a mixing bowl. Add the baking soda, salt, applesauce, spices, and vanilla extract to the egg mixture.

Add enough flour to make soft but not runny batter. Mix in the raisins and nuts if using them.

Spread batter into vegetable-oil sprayed loaf pan and bake for 30-50 minutes depending on your oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean- no wet batter.

Cool slightly in pan, un mold, slice, and serve plain or with whipped cream or fruit.
