Applesauce Cake
Easy for everyday but tasty enough for a special occasion

l/2 cup canola oil
l cup sugar
2 cups unbleached flour
2 cups applesauce
l l/2 tsp. baking soda
l tsp. cinnamon
l/2 tsp. nutmeg
l/2 tsp. vanilla
l/2 cup raisins (opt.)

Mix oil and sugar well, add applesauce and mix in the dry ingredients.  Beat until smooth. 

Pour in an oiled and floured 9" x l3" pan and bake at 350* for 30-35 minutes or into an oiled loaf pan and bake for 45 - 50 minutes until done.  This cake is even better the next day.

(This recipe is from The New Farm Vegetarian Cookbook) and submitted by MHVS secretary Carol Vito where it was well received at a recent board meeting. Our nutritional advisor
suggests using whole wheat pastry flour or 1 cup unbleached and one cup whole wheat. Walnut oil can be used instead of canola. Also organic sugar is a good choice (it is not filtered through bone char as some commercial sugar is)

We look forward to hearing from you
