No Tenemos Rancho Applesauce Cake
This is excellent for lunch boxes or bridge clubs and everything in between. It's moist, tender and redolent of a tempting array of spices. I am told that the title translates to "We do not have Rancho Applesauce Cake", which makes sense because, once you make this cake, it won't be around for long.
In a large bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, corn starch, cocoa, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, baking soda, baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl, combine the eggs, oil, vanilla and applesauce.
Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients, and pour in the applesauce mixture. Blend well. Stir in the pecans and raisins.
Pour batter into the prepared pan, and bake at 350°F for 35 minutes, or
until cake tester comes out clean when inserted in center of cake.
