It's almost September and September makes me think of apples...apple pie, apple upside down cake, caramel apples, apple crisp and my moms applesauce cake. The other night before Steve left the baking bug got to me so I made some yummy applesauce cake. It's easy!
1/2 cup of butter
1 cup of sugar
1 cup of applesauce
2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground cloves
1 cup raisins
cream butter, sugar and applesauce. Add flour and spices and then raisins.
Bake in greased and floured loaf pan or three minis.
Bake 40 min. at 350 degrees.
(yes here is my recipe card from when I was a teenager. I tell my husband if there is a fire my recipe boxes are on the list of things to grab to save)
Maybe it's because my mom made mini loves...but I love them. When I make batter and do this it's easy to share a little loaf and still have some for my family.
I love to serve my little loaves sliced on my long skinny Japanese dishes. I LOVE blue and white. When I was younger and in the Air Force, stationed in Japan, my friends thought I was a crazy single girl buying so many dishes...but I had hopes to one day get my dream job of wife and mother and do all things I get to do.
