Cinnamon, nutmeg, and toasted walnuts make this loaf cake taste as great as it smells.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup walnuts (chopped)
  • 1 1/2 cups applesauce
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups flour (all purpose)
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (ground)
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg (ground)
  • 1 cup raisins

Directions

1. Wash hands well with soap and warm water.

2. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease 2 (8x4x2 inch) loaf pans.

3. Toast walnuts in an ungreased skillet pan. Stir while heating on medium-low heat for 5-7 minutes. They are done when they are brown and smell nutty. Set aside to cool.

4. Mix applesauce, egg, sugar, oil and vanilla in a large bowl.

5. Mix flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and nutmeg together in a smaller bowl.

6. Pour flour mixture into applesauce mixture.

7. Stir in raisins and cooled toasted nuts.

8. Pour half of the batter into each greased pan. Bake for 45-55 minutes.

9. Remove cakes from the oven. Cool for 10 minutes. Remove from pans to finish cooling. For best taste, let cakes cool a few hours before serving.

To save a step, I didn't toast the walnuts and it still turned out great!
