Applesauce Cake – No Eggs

  • Yield 12 pieces
  • Prep 20 mins
  • Cook 30 mins

Developed during World War II because it did not contain eggs, was easily shipped and wouldn't spoil. Long lasting.


1 1/2 cups heated applesauce
1/3 cup shortening
1 1/2 cups California Raisins
1 cup white sugar
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon cloves
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a Bundt pan.
  2. Heat applesauce until warm. Add shortening. Stir until well blended. Add remaining ingredients. Mix well. Pour into prepared pan.
  3. Bake 30 to 40 minutes, until done. Let cool slightly in pan, then turn onto a serving plate.

Note: Cake keeps well, is very moist and no refrigeration is necessary.
