Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour one 9x13 inch pan.
  2. Beat flour, white sugar, salt, baking powder, cinnamon, cloves, allspice, applesauce, water, shortening, 2 eggs, raisins, and 1/2 cup chopped almonds with a mixer on low, scraping the bowl constantly, 30 seconds. Beat on high speed, scraping bowl occasionally, 3 minutes. Pour into prepared pan.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean, 60-65 minutes.

very heavy cake, expected a lighter cake. i substituted 1 1/2 baking soda for the 1/2 baking powder and loved it.

cake turned out to be 1 inch in height and VERY heavy. Thought I'd made a mistake so I made it again....results were the same.

Not what I expected. Very dense, heavy cake with an icing that does not match.
