Applesauce Cake Recipe

June 6 is National Applesauce Cake Day!  My mom used to make applesauce cake every once in a while.  It’s very moist.  Using applesauce in a recipe is a good way to cut down on the amount of fat.   Here’s a recipe for you to try out:


  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/2 tsp allspice
  • 1/2 cup softened shortening
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 16 oz jar of applesauce
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup nuts, chopped
  • 1 cup raisins


  1. Mix together all the dry ingredients.
  2. Mix in wet ingredients and beat for 2 to 4 minutes.
  3. Mix in raisins and nuts.
  4. Pour batter into greased and floured 9×12 inch pan and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.


Best served the next day.
