They say you can mix this right in the baking dish, but I did use my mixer.
Apple, Maple, Walnut Snack Cake-adapted from Taste of Home
1 1/3 C A/P flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 C brown sugar
1/2 C water
1/2 C applesauce
1/3 C oil
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vinegar
1/2 tsp cinnamon-add as much as you like
1/2 tsp pure maple extract-if you find it at Marshalls etc. grab it! You won't be sorry
1/4 tsp vanilla
1/3 C nuts-walnut or pecan
1/3 C raisins
- I just threw everything (except nuts/raisins) in the bowl of my mixer and put the spurs to it. Mix in the nuts/raisins last.
- Pour into an ungreased 8x8 baking dish.
- Bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
- Garnish with powdered sugar if desired.
