Applesauce Cake


Ingredients (use vegan versions):

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup vegan sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons powdered unsweetened chocolate (use less if you wish or leave it out entirely for more of a spice cake)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon mace
  • 20 ounces unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 cup raisins


This is our family’s favorite cake — we found the recipe on a box of
raisins, I think, in the 1950’s. It used to call for 1/2 cup of oil,
but by increasing the applesauce it no longer needs it.

Mix dry ingredients together, then add the applesauce and stir. Bake at 325
degrees for 45-60 minutes, depending on the size of pan you use. (More for
smaller, deeper pans, less for 9 x 13 pans.) It’s done when a toothpick can
be inserted and pulled out clean.

The cake is so rich I don’t put frosting on it; my mother used to sprinkle
powdered vegan sugar on top to give it a nice look.
