Yummm. Here it is, with Michael's touches for that extra deliciousness I LOVE:
Fresh Apple Cake
5 medium apples, peeled and chopped (a variety is good)
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup melted butter
1/2 cup applesauce
2 eggs, to be beaten in
2 cups sifted flour
2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. allspice
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 cup seedless white raisins
1 cup chopped nuts (optional, walnuts)
♥Combine apples and sugar in medium bowl, and let stand for 10 minutes.
♥Meanwhile, in large bowl, stir in melted butter and applesauce, then beat in the eggs.
♥Sift flour with baking powder, salt and spices.
♥Stir in raisins and nuts, then add apple mixture. Mix thoroughly.
♥Pour into greased 13" X 9" pan. The batter will be quite stiff.
♥ Bake at 375 degrees F for one hour (or 5-15 minutes longer, so it's browned. See photos below!)
♥Cool on wire rack before cutting.
♥ This super moist cake needs no frosting! Great for breakfast, too! Sh-h-h-h!
Hope you enjoy it! Let me know if you make it!! Thanks for looking! ~Kathy xo
