ingredients

directions

  • Place flour, sugar, dry sugar substitute, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves in a mixer bowl and mix at low speed to blend well.
  • Combine hot applesauce and baking soda. (Don't try to be modern and use cold applesauce and mix the baking soda with the flour; it doesn't work as well that way.).
  • Add the applesauce mixture, along with oil, nuts, and raisins, to flour mixture.
  • Mix at medium speed until flour is moistened and batter is creamy.
  • Spread batter evenly in a 9 x 13-inch cake pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray or greased well with margarine or butter.
  • Bake at 375 degrees for 20 or 25 minutes, or until bars pull away from the sides of the pan and a cake tester comes out clean from the center. Cool on a wire rack.

    I had a copy of this cookbook from the library and made these a few times before. I posted a variation on this recipe about 3 years ago ( Recipe #177749 ) but forgot to post the original for safe keeping, so thanks for posting it. These are tasty and very moist and chewy. I also used pecans and left out the raisins. Made for Fall 2009 My 3 Chefs game.
