Best Applesauce Cake

This very low sugar version of applesauce cake is wonderful dusted with just a little powdered sugar! The applesauce that I used was home made using my neighbor’s apples from their orchard.

1¾ cup gluten free flour blend
1 t. baking powder
1 t. baking soda
1 t. ground cinnamon
½ t. ground nutmeg
½ t. ground cloves
½ t. salt
2 eggs
½ cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled
½ cup coconut* or regular sugar
¼ cup honey
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
½ cup raisins
½ cup nuts, chopped

Preheat oven to 350˚F. Spray an 8 x 4 inch loaf pan with GF cooking spray.

Sift together dry ingredients, spices, and salt.

In separate bowl, beat the eggs until light and frothy. Add the butter. Add the sugar and honey and mix well. Add the applesauce, raisins, and nuts.

Mix the flour mixture with the egg mixture and do not over blend.

Pour into loaf pan and bake for 45 minutes to an hour or until toothpick comes out clean. Slice to serve.

Makes: One loaf.

Notes: *I use coconut sugar due to its low glycemic index. It has a caramel like flavor.

This recipe is from my cookbook: "Delicious! The Very Best of Gluten Free and Wheat Free Cooking. It is available at:
