    List of Ingredients

    2 cups golden seedless raisins
    1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    1/2 cup brown sugar
    1/2 cup white granulated sugar
    1 tsp ground cloves
    1 tsp ground cinnamon
    1 tsp ground allspice
    1 tsp salt
    1 cup hazelnuts or walnuts, toasted
    1 Tbsp double acting baking powder
    4 Tbsp butter, melted
    1 cup cool, thick applesauce or boiled down canned applesauce
    Vanilla ice cream (optional, for serving)


    Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Butter and flour a 9-inch, 6 cup loaf pan. Line the bottom with wax paper.

    Toss the raisins in the flour, add the sugars, seasonings, nuts and baking powder.

    Beat the butter into the applesauce; blend into the flour mixture. Turn batter into prepared pan.

    Bake at 300 degrees F for 1 1/2 hours or until a skewer comes out clean - do not press or poke until set or cake may deflate. Cool 20 minutes in the pan, then unmold, turn right-side up and cool on a rack. Wrap and let cure a day before serving.

    Serve as is or with vanilla ice cream.
