Applesauce makes this cake super moist and the raisins and walnuts are a delicious addition.
Ingredients:
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1 1/2 cups unsweetened applesauce
1 egg
1 cup sugar
2 Tablespoons canola oil
1 teaspoon almond extract
2 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 cup raisins or dried cranberries
Directions:
1 Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray 2 (8x4x2 inch) loaf pans with cooking spray.
2 Toast walnuts in an ungreased skillet pan. Stir while heating on medium-low heat for 5-7 minutes. They are done when they are brown and smell nutty. Set aside to cool.
3 Mix applesauce, egg, sugar, oil and extract in a large bowl.
4 Mix flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and nutmeg together in a smaller bowl.
5 Pour flour mixture into applesauce mixture.
6 Stir in raisins and cooled toasted nuts. Pour half of the batter into each greased pan. Bake for 45-55 minutes.
7 Remove cakes from the oven. Cool for 10 minutes. Remove from pans to finish cooling. For best taste, let cakes cool a few hours before serving.
8 ENJOY!
