Applesauce Cake

I also came up with this recipe after several tries to get the taste just right.

21/2 cups sifted flour

2 cups sugar

1/4 teaspoon baking powder

11/2 teaspoon baking soda

11/2 teaspoon salt

3/4 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon ground cloves

1/2 teaspoon allspice

1/2 cup soft margarine

1/2 cup water

11/2 cups applesauce (natural)

2 eggs

1/2 cup chopped nuts

1 cup raisins, chopped

Preheat the oven to 350*. Sift together flour, sugar, baking powder and soda, salt, spices.

Add soft margarine, water and applesauce. Beat about 2 minutes on low speed. Add eggs and beat 2 minutes longer at medium speed. Stir in chopped nuts and raisins. Pour into a greased and floured 13x9" glass pan.

Bake for 45 to 50 minutes.
