It all started with an episode of Max & Ruby. Ruby and her friend Louise were doing this little sing-song game that goes like this:
Brown sugar, applesauce, spices, flour- put them in the oven for half an hour.
Bake, bubble, bubble bake, apple pie is fun to make….APPLE.
So I think, hmmm…wonder if you can make something just with those ingredients. SO I go to my trusty friend Google. And I find a recipe. It has oil too, but all the ingredients. So I made it. YUM!! So yesterday, I remember that I could use a can of Diet Coke instead of the oil. Thank you Weight Watchers. So here are some photos of my Applesauce Cake with Diet Coke.
WRONG. Ok, so, use the oil people. USE THE OIL.
here is the real recipe. Truly when made like this, YUMMY!!!
Preheat oven to 350
2 cups applesauce
1 3/4 cups packed brown sugar
1 cup oil
3 1/2 cups flour
3/4 tsp salt
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground cloves
2 tsp cinnamon
Add the applesauce mixture to the sifted mix.
1 cup nuts (I use walnuts)
1 cup raisins
Pour the batter into the cake pans.
Bake 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
While it is baking, lick the spoons and give your husband the bowl. Mmmm.
After the cakes are cool enough to remove, cool them on cooling racks, otherwise they’ll get soggy, which is gross.
