Raisin-Walnut Snack Cake Not too sweet, and rich in nuts, raisins, and applesauce, this old-fashioned cake makes a fine afternoon snack. Use homemade applesauce if you can and add the optional ginger for extra zing.

1 CUP PACKED DARK BROWN SUGAR
1 1/2 STICKS (12 TABLESPOONS) BUTTER, SOFTENED
2 LARGE EGGS
3 CUPS SIFTED FLOUR
2 TEASPOONS BAKING SODA
2 TEASPOONS GROUND CINNAMON
1 TEASPOON POWDERED GINGER (OPTIONAL)
1/2 TEASPOON SALT
1 3/4 CUPS APPLESAUCE (ONE 16-OUNCE JAR)
1 CUP RAISINS
1 CUP COARSELY CHOPPED WALNUTS

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Butter and flour a 10-inch Bundt pan or a 9 x 13-inch rectangular baking dish.
  2. In a large bowl, beat together the sugar and butter on medium speed of an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs until thoroughly mixed.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, and salt with a fork until evenly combined.
  4. With a rubber spatula or a mixer on low speed, mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients in 3 batches, alternating with the applesauce. Scrape the sides of the bowl occasionally and mix only until the dry ingredients are incorporated. Stir in the raisins and walnuts.
  5. Spoon into the prepared pan and tap the pan on the table to level the batter.
  6. Bake for 45-55 minutes for the Bundt pan or 35-45 minutes for the rectangular pan, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean. Cool in the pan on a rack for 10 minutes. Remove the cake from the, pan and cool completely on a rack.
