Applesauce and Honey Cake With Raisin Glaze

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Redneck Epicurean

This cake has all natural ingredients. As for being diabetic-safe, it has honey. If you're a type-two, you could probably get away with a small piece of this. It is delicious and a great way to use that applesauce that's been sitting in the fridge.

Excellent. I did reduce the liquid in the glaze by half. It just seemed too much. I serve this warm, as a sort of pudding. I make the cake with whole wheat flour and add the appropriate amount of baking powder. That, together with the fact that there is no sugar makes this a more healthful cake. I have made this numerous times. It is always a big success. Thanks for posting.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8x8 pan.
  2. Cream the butter in a large bowl; while still beating, stream in the honey. Mix in the applesauce.
  3. Combine the dry ingredients and mix into the applesauce mixture and beat 30 seconds.
  4. Fold in the nuts and raisins.
  5. Bake 40 minutes or until the cake springs back in the center and a toothpick comes out clean. While the cake is baking, prepare the raisin glaze.
  6. In a saucepan, combine the water and chopped raisins. Bring to a boil; add honey, reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes. Remove from heat and add lemon juice. While cake is still warm, pierce cake with a fork (the end of a wooden spoon is too large). Spoon the glaze over the cake.
