Neither of my parents liked fruitcake of any kind so they were not around our house.  Both my mom and dad did enjoy applesauce cake and we had that frequently.  However, this Applesauce-Raisin Tube Cake was reserved for the holidays.

1 cup butter or oleo, softened
2 cups granulated sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 cups applesauce
2 1/2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoon soda
1 1/2 tsp salt
3/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp allspice
1/2 cup water
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup raisins

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease and flour a 10-inch tube pan and set aside.

In mixer bowl combine the butter or oleo, sugar, egg, and applesauce.  Beat until light.  Mix flour, soda, salt, cinnmaon, cloves, and allspice.  Add to the applesauce mixture alternatley with the water, mixing well after each.  Fold in the walnuts and raisins.  Pour into the tube pan and bake for 50 to 60 minutes or until the cake tests done.
