BFC Recipes: Applesauce Cake PDF Print E-mail

Here is a recipe for an easy and delicious applesauce loaf.  ~Chris Ellis


  • 1 cup applesauce
  • 2 Tbsp. oil
  • 2 Tbsp. soft butter or vegetable spread
  • 1/2 cup Barbados molasses or 1/4 cup molasses and 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 Tbsp. orange juice
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 3/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour or
  • 1/2 white and 1/2 whole wheat flour can be used (Spelt flour, an alternative to wheat flour, can also be substituted)

**Eggs can be omitted if necessary, and if so, 1/2 tsp. baking powder should be added to flour


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Beat together oil and soft butter or spread until smooth. Add molasses and honey, then the egg, applesauce, orange juice, cinnamon, and salt. Add soda and stir to dissolve.
  3. Dredge raisins with some of the flour and add along with remaining flour, stirring gently to form a smooth batter.  
  4. Pour into a greased, floured 8-inch loaf pan.
  5. Bake for 1 hour until firm. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes and then remove to a rack to cool completely.  Enjoy!   

This can be made into small mini-loaves for gifts but the baking time will need to be adjusted.
