This recipe was from a neighbor when I was a child.

1 1/2 cup flour
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/3 cup butter
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup raisins

Preheat the oven to a temperature of 325 degrees. Line the bottom of an iron skillet with waxed paper and set it aside while mixing cake.

Dissolve soda in applesauce. Stir in the sugars, butter, and the beaten egg. Blend in the flour and spices. Add the raisins which have been plumped by mixing 1/4 cup sugar and a little water and bringing to a boil with the raisins. When the cake batter is mixed well pour the batter into the iron skillet and bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until a toothpick in the center comes out clean.
