Mama’s Applesauce Cake

1 C sugar

1/2 C shortening

1 well beaten egg

1/8 t salt

3/4 C raisins

2 C flour

1 1/2 C applesauce

2 t soda

1 t cinnamon

1/4 C hot water

2 T cocoa

3/4 C nuts

Cream sugar and shortening. Add eggs, beat well. Mix soda and applesauce, then mix with the rest. Add hot water. Sift flour, cocoa, salt and cinnamonn. Mix all together. Add rasins and nuts. Bake in a moderate oven.

That’s all that’s on the recipe card–in Mama’s hand writing. (I love old recipes from Mama.) Bake the cake in an oblong pan for about an hour at 350 degrees. If you bake it in layer pans, shorten the time by five or ten minutes.
