WHEAT APPLESAUCE CAKE

Ingredients:
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp cloves
1 cup applesauce
1/2 cup oil
Nuts, dates, raisins (opt)

Directions:
Mix all the dry ingredients. Then stir in the applesauce, oil, and nuts or fruits (opt). Bake in a 9×9 pan at 350 degrees for about 35 minutes. Top each piece with warm apple sauce when serving.

Special Notes:
When serving this cake do NOT leave off the dollop of warm applesauce on each piece. It balances out the sweetness of the cake and makes all the difference.

    I was reading the ingredients and directions and it says to mix the applesauce and oil, but I couldn’t find oil listed in the ingredient section. Is there a type-o or does the applesauce take the place of the oil? This sounds really good! Thanks!

    • Andrea,
      We were missing a line break in there, so it read 1/2 cup oil Nuts,
      dates, raisins (opt) all on one line. It’s fixed. Good luck and hope
      you like it.
