Applesauce Spice Cake

It’s that time of year again, where a bear’s thoughts turn to things with nutmeg and cinnamon in them.

Girlie Bear’s going to a sleep over tonight, so we thought we’d whip up something for her to take, and this seemed appropriate.

Ingredients:

1 cup white flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
Nutmeg
Ginger
Cinnamon
Cloves

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 to 1 cup white sugar, depending on your tastes
1/4 cup honey
Vanilla, bourbon, or almond extract
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1 cup applesauce

1 small apple, cored and peeled, and cut into small pieces
1/4 cup raisins

Sift flours, soda, baking powder, and spices (to taste) into a bowl.

In another bowl, cream together butter, sugar, and honey.  Add vanilla, bourbon, or extract and eggs.   Combine milk and applesauce in a bowl.  Add dry ingredients to sugar/butter mixture and mix thoroughly.  Add milk/applesauce mixture and mix thoroughly.  Mix in apple and raisins.

Place in a small, greased baking dish ( I use a 6×6), and bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 to 40 minutes or until a knife poked into the center comes out clean.
