The Spicy Applesauce Cake is a delicious diabetic cake that serves 16. The ingredients for this cake include half a cup of chopped walnuts, one and a half cups of unsweetened applesauce, one egg, one cup of sugar, two tablespoons of vegetable oil, and one teaspoon of vanilla extract. In addition, two cups of white, all-purpose flour, two teaspoons of baking soda, half a teaspoon of ground cinnamon, half a teaspoon of ground nutmeg, and one cup of seedless raisins are necessary.

The directions follow: Begin by preheating the oven to 350° Fahrenheit. Next, grease two 8 by 4 by 2-inch baking pans. Set these aside then toast the chopped walnuts in a greased pan for 6 minutes, or until they are brown. Then leave them to cool. Afterwards, mix the sugar, oil, applesauce, egg and vanilla in a bowl. Then mix the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and nutmeg in a separate bowl. Next, add the contents of the second bowl to the applesauce mixture. Stir the resultant mixture then add the raisins and cooled walnuts to it.

Afterwards, mix the batter thoroughly then pour half of it into each baking pan. Subsequently, put the baking pans into the oven and let the cakes bake for 45 to 55 minutes. When the cakes are ready, remove them from the oven. Allow them to cool for 10 minutes then remove them from the baking pans to continue cooling. Later, you may cut the cakes into pieces and serve them with a drink.
