    UnknownChef86's Note:

    This cake is so delicious and so versatile! I first discovered the applesauce version in Jim Fobel's, "Old-Fashioned Baking Book." I didn't have any applesauce, so I tweaked it and made pumpkin cake instead. It was an instant hit, and I usually continue to make it with pumpkin instead of applesauce. Serve with a big dollop of whipped cream, if desired. See note in directions to make the pumpkin cake. I don't normally make this with the raisins and nuts, but you can include them if you like.

      Outstanding cake! I did the applesauce version, I used 1/4c. raisins, 3/4 c dried cranberries and the optional walnuts. The ingredients did not mention nutmeg, but the instructions did, so I used 1/4t. and then decided a 1/4t. ginger would be lovely too, so in that went. It mixes together very easily and smells lovely while baking. I decided to frost it with Grandma's Penuche Frosting as I remember Mom frosting spice cake with penuche frosting when I was little. You do need to eat this with a fork not like bars as the texture is very delicate. The flavor was delicious. I cannot wait to try the pumpkin variation.
