Reviews for Raisin Applesauce Cake
"Eggs?? Eggs are not even listed in this recipe....Perhaps this recipe needs a rewrite...."
"It's right in the directions - you add it with the sugar and oil after beating the eggs.[quote] In a bowl, beat egg substitute for 1 minute on medium speed. Add the applesauce, sugar and oil; mix well. Combine the dry ingredients; add to applesauce mixture and mix well. Stir in raisins and walnuts. [/quote]"
"Very tastey . Recipe need to stat when to add applesauce . This was left out."
"Great recipe. Very easy and nice and moist."
"Cake' great--sure glad I wasn't a novice as the instructions are poor"
"Have to make sure you correct a couple of things for the people who don't cook all the time to make sure they put in the Applesauce & Molasses. It does make a great cake, will make it often."
"Yes...just mix the molasses and applesauce in with the butter sugar mixutre! This is a wonderful and moist cake! I used homemade applesauce and golden raisans...yummmy! I will make this again and again! Thanks so much!"
"This recipe is missing the critical step of what to do with the applesauce and molasses. I beat it with my mixer into the sugar/shortening mixture before I added the dry ingredients."
