"I adjusted this recipe to suit my tastes: I used 1/2 white & 1/2 packed brown sugar, 1-1/2 cups unsweetened applesauce, an additional 1/8 cup all-purpose flour, 1 tsp. salt instead of 1/2 tsp., 1 tsp. ground cinnamon, 1/2 tsp. each ground gloves and nutmeg, in place of raisins if not available, I used 1 cup mixed candied fruit, 1 Tbsp. ground Navel orange, 1 package (10-oz.) butterscotch chips OR cinnamon chips, 1/3 cup sugar and 1/2 cup chopped pecans. I greased and floured 13x9x2" baking pan & I baked cake 35 to 40 minutes @ 375o F. or until cake tester comes out clean when inserted near center. I have used this recipe before and I thank you for sharing it with quick Cooking! delowenstein"
