Johnny Appleseed Cake Recipe

Johnny Appleseed Cake Recipe

Nature’s bounty is so magnificent at this autumn time of year that
it’s easy to find ways to appreciate her. This cake is certainly
one of them, and teaches us to appreciate the bounty of our own
existence in every season, but especially in this moment. Then we
can plant the seeds of that joy in all that we do.

2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground cloves
2 tsp baking soda
1 cup raisins
1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup honey
3 Tbs molasses
1 1/2 cups applesauce

Mix together the dry ingredients, raisins, and walnuts in a large bowl. Melt the butter in the oven while it heats; mix with honey, molasses, and applesauce. Add wet to dry ingredients and mix thoroughly. Pour batter into a well buttered 9×9-inch pan. Bake at 325 for 40-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Serves 8.
