Apple Sauce Spice Cake

A community recipe by

Really yummy! Doesn't really need icing- I usually dribble a blend of milk and icing sugar over the top, or else leave it plain. I have never used cream cheese icing with it. Again a good one to bake for cake stalls as you get 2 cakes out of the mixture, or for family baking bake it as a slab.


Serves: 6-8

  • 250 millilitres butter
  • 500 millilitres superfine sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 500 millilitres natural apple sauce (no added sugar)
  • 1000 millilitres flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg
  • 250 millilitres chopped nutmeats
  • 250 millilitres raisins (sometimes I add sultanas)
