After I posted about apples a few weeks ago, I had several requests for the spice cake recipe that I use applesauce in. So, without further ado, I give you Speedy Spice Cake.
2 2/3 cup Bisquick
½ cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
6 Tbs. vegetable oil
½ tsp. cream of tartar
2 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. cinnamon
½ tsp. ground cloves
Mix until moistened. Add 1 cup applesauce and ½ cup cold water. Add ½ cup raisins and ½ cup chopped nuts or 1 cup of either.
Beat on medium speed for 1 minute.
Pour into greased and floured 9×13 or 10×13 pan.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 35-45 minutes.
Remove pan from oven and allow to cool slightly.
Dust with powdered sugar. This step is optional, but I always do it. 🙂 This is great warm or cold. I try to have it still warm for the kids my son (only one in school now) when he gets home from school. Gets me extra points. 🙂 Yummy! Enjoy!
