Applesauce Cake

2 cups sifted flour ( I use cake flour)
1/2 teas baking soda
1 teas baking powder
1/2 teas salt
3/4 teas cinnamon
1/2 teas nutmeg
1/4 teas cloves
2 Tbls milk
1 teas vanilla
1 cup applesauce
1/2 cup butter
1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
3/4 cup seedless raisins (this is an old recipe)
3/4 cup minced pecans or walnuts

Preheat oven to 350* F. Sift flour with baking soda,baking powder,salt and spices and set aside.Mix milk, vanilla and applesauce.Cream butter until light,add sugar gradually, continuing to cream until fluffy.Add dry ingredients alternately with applesauce mixture, beginning and ending with the dry and adding about 1/3 of the total at a time.Beat just until smooth.Mix in raisins and nuts.Spoon into an ungreased 9 inch pan lined with wax-paper and bake 35 minutes until cake shrinks slightly from sides of pan and is springy to the touch.Cool upright in pan on a wire rack 5 minutes,then invert on rack ,peel off paper,turn right side up , and cool completely.Frost or not as desired or serve slightly warm with Lemon-Raisin Sauce.

This is also great served over Gingerbread.
