Raspberry Applesauce Cake

I love the Fall and I love apple sauce. Honestly it’s my favorite time of year hands down. Perfect weather, perfect food and flavors and its right before my favorite holiday, Christmas. Ok, I know Thanksgiving is before Christmas but its close. But I love the flavors of fall and I will be going to the apple orchard at least 5 times this year if it kills me. I just love it there and don’t mind paying the premium price for their apples and eating a warm apple cider donut isn’t too bad either. Back to the recipe. My mom brought me some raspberry and mixed berry apple sauce, and I knew I had to come up with something for them to be show cased in. And so looking through my many recipes I came across this one and decided it would be perfect. This cake turned out great and the hint of raspberry gave it the right amount of tang. I really liked this cake so much I’m trying to figure out how to make it without the applesauce part. Or maybe use a different sauce. The ideas are endless with this easy recipe.

Raspberry Applesauce Cake

3 cups of AP Flour
2 teaspoons of baking soda
1 teaspoon of salt
2 ½ teaspoons of cinnamon
1 cup of butter, softened
2 cups of light brown sugar
¼ cup of honey
2 large eggs
2 cups of Chunky Apple – I used Raspberry Applesauce that my mom bought for me

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a 10 cup bundt cake pan with nonstick baking spray. In a bowl combine the flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Cream together the butter, brown sugar and honey until light and fluffy. Add in the eggs one at a time and beat until combined. Gradually add in the flour mixture and beat until just combined and then beat in the applesauce. Pour the batter into the pan and smooth the top. Bake for 45-55 minutes or until a cake tester comes out with a few moist crumbs attached. Cool on a wire rack 10 minutes in the pan and turn out onto a cooling rack and cool completely.
