Applesauce Cake


2 3/4 cups cake flour or 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups sugar
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 tsp. soda
1 1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. cloves
1/2 tsp. allspice
1/2 cup soft shortening
1/2 cup water
1 1/2 cups unsweetened applesauce
2 eggs (1/3 to 1/2 cup)
1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts (I like pecans better)
1 cup raisins, chopped


Heat oven to 350 degrees F (moderate). Grease and flour two 8- or 9- inch round layer pans or one 13x9x2-inch oblong pan. Measure flour by dip-level-pour method or by sifting. Blend dry ingredients in bowl. Add shortening, water, and applesauce. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed on mixer or 300 vigorous strokes by hand. Scrape sides and bottom of bowl constantly. Add eggs. Beat 2 more minutes, scraping bowl frequently. Stir in nuts and raisins. Pour into pan(s). Bake layers 35 to 40 minutes, oblong 45 to 50 minutes. Cool.
