Applesauce Cake

30 Sep

Applesauce CakeMy first copy of The Joy of Cooking had a great recipe for applesauce cake – really a spice cake made with applesauce. When my first Joy fell apart from heavy use, I replaced it – but some of the content was different, and the applesauce cake was no longer included. When I had a large amount of applesauce to use up, I searched the Web and found this one, which looks similar.

Ingredients:

3 ½ cups cake flour
2 tsp. baking soda
½  teaspoon salt
3 tsp. cinnamon
2 tsp. allspice
2 tsp. nutmeg
½ tsp. cloves
1 cup butter or margarine
2 cups sugar
2 eggs, beaten
2 cups applesauce

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease and flour a tube or bundt pan.

Sift together twice flour, soda, salt, and spices.

In a large bowl, cream butter or margarine. Add sugar gradually and cream well. Add beaten eggs; mix well.

Add flour mixture alternately with applesauce.

Pour into pan and bake for about 1 hour 15 minutes, on until a tester comes out clean. Allow to cool a little before removing from pan.

Serves 12 to 16
