Applesauce Cake Day

Happy Applesauce Cake Day!

Today I made applesauce cake with some left over applesauce from my week long stint with tonsillitis. It was a little on the dry side but good other than that. Here’s the recipe that I used from mrfood.com. 

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable shortening
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups applesauce
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9- x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, cream sugar and shortening with an electric beater on low speed. Beat in the eggs, one at a time. Add flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt; beat until well mixed. Add applesauce and vanilla; mix well then stir in the walnuts and pour batter into prepared baking dish.
  3. Bake 30 to 35 minutes, or until wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool.
