This moist, yummy cake is a snap to prepare but tastes like you fussed over it
1/2 cup butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup apple sauce
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup seedless raisins
2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
Using your stand mixer or hand mixer, cream the butter and beat in the sugar gradually.
Combine the baking soda and applesauce and blend into the butter and sugar mixture.
Stir in the raisins and the dry ingredients.
Pour into a greased and floured loaf pan and bake for 45-ish minutes in a preheated 350 degree oven, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
If you like nuts, use 1/2 cup raisins and 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans.
This would also be great with dates or dried cherries instead of the raisins.
