Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour one 9x13 inch pan.
  2. Beat flour, white sugar, salt, baking powder, cinnamon, cloves, allspice, applesauce, water, shortening, 2 eggs, raisins, and 1/2 cup chopped almonds with a mixer on low, scraping the bowl constantly, 30 seconds. Beat on high speed, scraping bowl occasionally, 3 minutes. Pour into prepared pan.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean, 60-65 minutes.
  4. To Make Frosting: Just before cake is removed from the oven, beat egg whites until foamy. Beat brown sugar and lemon juice gradually into egg whites until stiff. Carefully spread over HOT cake. Sprinkle with nuts. Bake at 400 degrees F (205 degrees C) until brown, 8 to 10 minutes.

In this recipe there is supposed to be 1 1/2 tsp. baking soda in addition to the 1/4 tsp. baking powder. I've used this recipe (with the baking soda) in the past and it is one of the best applesauce cakes I've had.

very heavy cake, expected a lighter cake. i substituted 1 1/2 baking soda for the 1/2 baking powder and loved it.

cake turned out to be 1 inch in height and VERY heavy. Thought I'd made a mistake so I made it again....results were the same.

Not what I expected. Very dense, heavy cake with an icing that does not match.

Clearly salt and leavening amounts are incorrect. Switched them. Makes a nice snacking cake or breakfast cake without the frosting, which I agree doesn't match the cake.

A friend of mine made this cake, and I agree with Karen, the previous reviewer. There is supposed to be 1 1/2 tsp. baking soda as well. The salt and baking powder amounts are correct. My friend left out the raisins and nuts and added 2 apples, peeled, cored, and chopped. She also left off the glaze. (Her recipe for glaze was different.) It was a wonderful moist cake!
