1/2 c. walnuts, chopped
1/2 c. butter
2 c. sugar
2 eggs
2 1/2 c. sifted flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. allspice
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 c. applesauce
1/2 c. raisins
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream together butter and sugar. Add eggs, beating until light. Sift together dry
ingredients; add to creamed mixture. Blend in applesauce, raisins and nuts. Turn into greased and floured 13 x 9 x 2
inch pan. Bake 45 minutes or until cake tests done. Cool in pan..
