DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350F and butter a 9x5" loaf pan and line bottom with parchment paper and butter paper. (This makes removing it from the pan so much easier).
  • Beat butter and sugar with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Beat in egg.
  • Stir baking soda into applesauce in a separate bowl.
  • Mix dry ingredients together.
  • Add dry ingredients in to butter mixture alternating with the applesauce. Mix just until blended well - don't overmix or the cake will be dense.
  • Gently stir in raisins.
  • Pour batter into pan and bake until top springs back when pressed - about 50 minutes (check at 45 minutes).
  • Cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes then turn out onto the rack to cool completely.
  • Make glaze by mixing the lemon juice with the confectioner's sugar until smooth. Spoon glaze over the cooled cake and let set up before serving.
