Applesauce Spice Cake

One of my kid’s favorite desserts! A recipe passed along from a good friend of mine and is always a crowd pleaser!

2 and 1/2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup butter, melted
2 cup sugar
2 eggs
16 ounces applesauce
3/4 cup raisins, optional
1/2 cup chopped nuts, optional

It looks like a lot, but this recipe is so easy you’ll giggle when you finish! Mix all your ingredients, bake for 45 minutes at 350 degrees.
I don’t make the frosting for it often, but for those of you who’d like to…

Powdered sugar (about 1 bag)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
milk (just enough to incorporate into a frosting)

Poke holes into the cake while it is hot.  Mix everything together then pour over cake. Serve either hot or when cooled.
Happy cooking!!
