Applesauce Cake

Craving something sweet on Sunday evening, I quickly mixed up this super easy recipe that I've made numerous times.  It always satisfies and keeps very well.  But you won't have to worry about that!

Applesauce Cake

2 1/2 cups flour (I have successfully substituted up to half of this with whole wheat flour)
2 cups sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp allspice
1 1/2 cups unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup softened butter
2 eggs
1 cup raisins
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Cream butter and sugar until smooth. Add eggs and beat well.  Add combined dry ingredients alternately with applesauce and water.  Beat until well combined.  Stir in raisins and walnuts.  Turn into greased 9" x 13" pan.  Bake in preheated 350 oven for 60 - 65 minutes.

Easy peasy!

Oh, I think I can smell it! I'm going to mark this and make one when I make applesauce this fall.
