APPLESAUCE, BANANA AND RAISIN CAKE

Applesauce, Banana and Raisin Cake This cake is so good and even better with a cup of coffee.  It is a very moist cake, too.

1 cup raisins
1/4 cup rum (Can use apple juice, bourbon or water, too)
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
3 eggs
2/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup applesauce
4 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
1/2 cup buttermilk
2 bananas, cut into small pieces
1 cup nuts of your choice (Optional)
 
In a small dish cover the raisins with the rum and microwave for 1 minute.  Remove and set aside.  In a large bowl whisk together flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and cloves. I use the wire whisk and beat the eggs with the sugar, vanilla, applesauce and butter.  Combine egg mixture with flour mixture and stir with a spoon.  Add buttermilk and keep stirring.  Fold in bananas, raisins and nuts.  Pour into a 9 x 13 sprayed cake pan and bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 35 to 40 minutes checking for doneness as ovens vary.  Frost with your favorite frosting or with Cream Cheese Frosting below.  Enjoy!

  1. Bet you could frost w/ Cool whip to cut down on calories a bit! I think that would be good too but you would need to cool cake completely first. Or plain, warm with vanilla ice cream? Yum!

  2. This sounds delicious. I usually make a Doctor Byrd cake with bananas and pineapple, very moist, but I’m going to try this one!

  3. Oh Yum! All of my favorite ingredients in one cake! I think I will use your caramel frosting for this cake, that should be pure heaven! Thank you so much for the recipes!

  4. This sounds luscious, but I don’t care for raisins. Can the rum (or in our case, more likely bourbon) just be added to the rest of the ingredients?
