Applesauce Apple Cake

As I was cruising thru favorite blogs a while back, I read THIS POST from Scotty's Place, and was reminded I have a great recipe for Applesauce Cake.  Handsome Husband doesn't care for a lot of sweets, but this is one desert he really likes!  It's been tweaked from the original just a bit, which came from a dear high school friend years ago, AND I blurred it with Pammy Sue's Recipe by adding chunks of apples.
 
 
 
 
Applesauce Apple Cake
 
 1 1/2 cups self rising flour
1 cup almond flour
2 cups sugar
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon cloves
1/2 teaspoon allspice
1 1/2 cups applesauce
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup butter
2 eggs
1 cup raisins
1/2 cup pecans

AND thanks to Pammy Sue  ;-)

2 Granny Smith Apples, coarsely chopped

Place all ingredients in large bowl (except raisins, apples and nuts).  Blend at low speed on mixer.  Once mixed, gently add apples, raisins and nuts.  Bake at 350 about 45 -55 minutes.  This cake is very dense and moist.  Test the cake by pressing a toothpick into the center.  When the toothpick comes out clean, the cake is done.
 
 Mmmmm...

This cake is delicious!

So, what have you been baking?

  7. This would be a great way to use up my self rising flour. My husband doesn't care for really sweet desserts and I think he'd like this also. Thank you for linking up with Celebrate Your Story.
