APPLESAUCE CAKE

This is another good old family recipe from Southern Indiana.

1 1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup shortening or oleo
1 egg
1 1/2 cups unsweetened applesauce
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp cloves
2 cups flour
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp soda
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup raisins (I omit because I hate raisins!)
1/2 cup nuts, optional (I use 1 cup since I don't use raisins.)

In a large mixing bowl, mix all ingredients together except raisins and nuts. Blend with electric mixer until well blended. Pour into a greased 9 x 13-inch baking pan and bake in a 375 degree oven approximately 45 minutes or until done.
