My Grams....

Except for the fact that I swam today, this post had nothing to do with swimming.  

Grams has been on my mind a lot lately, she was an amazing lady.  No matter what I had done good or bad when I went to her house there was coke or hot cocoa and 'applesauce raisin cake.'  My Grams was one of those women that 'a pinch here and a dash there' were all she put in on any recipe card and for most of her recipes are not documented.  I was looking for an applesauce raisin cake recipe because that is the one I associate with her.  As I said no matter what, that was in the air when I visited.  

I finally found this one and it looks a lot like hers smelled (Yes I can translate between the two).  


Ingredients

  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 cup butter
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups applesauce
  • 2 cups raisins

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x13 inch pan. Mix together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time. Beat in the flour mixture alternately with the applesauce. Fold in the and raisins. Pour batter into prepared pan.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 40 to 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool.

So I'm going to try it and I will let you know if it is my Grams recipe minus of course the 'love' that she made it with.....
