Applesauce Cake with Cinnamon–Cream Cheese Frosting

Serves: Makes 8 to 10 servings

Ingredients:

  • 1½ teaspoons salt
  • 1½ teaspoons baking soda
  • 1¼ teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground cloves
  • ½ teaspoon ground allspice
  • ½ cups chopped toasted walnuts
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 2 eggs
  • 1½ cups unsweetened applesauce
  • ½ cup water

Cinnamon–Cream Cheese Frosting:

  • 8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 4 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Procedures:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Butter and flour a 10-inch loaf pan, tapping to remove the excess.


  2. Sift together the flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, cloves, and allspice into a large bowl. Stir in the walnuts and raisins. Cream together the granulated sugar and butter with an electric mixer at medium speed until well blended and fluffy. Add the eggs, 1 at a time. With the mixer at low speed, blend in the dry ingredients in 3 parts, alternating with the applesauce (all at once) and water, to form a smooth batter.


  3. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan. Bake for about 1 hour, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool slightly in the pan, then turn the cake out onto a wire rack and cool to room temperature.


  4. For the frosting, cream together the cream cheese and butter until smooth and well blended. Add the confectioners' sugar, 1 cup at a time, blending at low speed. Add the cinnamon and vanilla extract and continue blending until thoroughly incorporated.


  5. When the cake is fully cooled, spread the frosting over the top and side. Cut the cake into slices and serve.
