Applesauce Cake

applesauce cake

Applesauce has almost magical properties when it comes to baking. Fat, eggs, and sugar can be reduced or even, replaced with the addition of applesauce to a recipe. Add it to a few other basic staples from your pantry and you have cake! It is my go-to when a quick sweet treat is required. and oh, does the kitchen smell good when it’s baking. Today, I chose to make it with the smidge of applesauce left over from canning. I had one cup, just enough for this recipe. I did change one thing. This recipe calls for raisins which I rehydrated with two tablespoons of Fireball whiskey. It’s not necessary and you can use fruit juice or water in its place if the raisins seem a little dry. This cake can be eaten plain, but to fancy it up, add a sauce or frosting that suits your taste. Enjoy!
