Chocolate Applesauce Cake

1 cup oil
2 cups sugar
2 eggs beaten (well with fork)
2 tsp. soda in (2 Tbsp hot tap water)
2 cups applesauce ( I make and use chunky)

Combine in a large bowl and set aside. beating well.

2 tsp cinnamon
3 cups flour
1 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cloves (I use 1/2 tsp)
3 Tbsp powdered cocoa
1 1/2 tsp baking powder

I sift these together on wax paper. Before adding to wet mixture mix and add

1 cup nuts
1 cup golden raising (If using less chop)

Pour into prepared pan. 9 x 13 Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes to 1 hour.

This is a really old family recipe and I always do all the mixing by hand. This is more instructions than came with the cake. Older recipes didn’t give a lot of instructions but this is the way I make it. Add your favorite Chocolate Frosting.
