Applesauce Cake

A moist, tasty cake, this is a good recipe for times when you want something sweet but healthy. I have used it a few times to make birthday cake for little ones, particularly times when they have been sick on their birthday (and we don't eat sugar when we're sick). If you don't like raisins, nuts would also be good, or it would be good without either.

Applesauce Cake

1 c. shortening (butter)
1 c. honey
4 eggs (or 2 eggs and 4 tsp. baking soda)
4 c. unsweetened applesauce
2 tsp. vanilla
4 c. whole wheat flour (if using white wheat flour--or 2 c. wheat and 2 c. refined white, if not)
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. cloves
1 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking soda
1 c. raisins

Cream honey and butter.
Add eggs, cream well.
Add applesauce, sift in dry ingredients.
Add vanilla and raisins.
Pour batter in greased and floured 9x12 or 8x8 or 2 bread loaf pans.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 min or until inserted toothpick comes out clean.
