Recipe Information

Recipe Created By: Alex


1 1/4 cups applesauce
1/2 cup margarine
2 scant cups flour
1 generous cup sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
3 Tbsp baking powder
1 generous cup raisins
sprinkle demerara sugar


Preheat the oven to 350 °F.

Cream the margarine and sugar. Fold in the applesauce, sift in the flour, baking powder, and cinnamon. Stir in the raisins. Turn into a greased 7″ cake tin and bake for 1 and a half hours. If the top is browning too much, cover it after about an hour to prevent burning. Ten minutes before the end sprinkle with demerara sugar.


Demerara sugar is a course raw sugar.

This recipe was originally in UK measurements and converted to US.


Original recipe calls for making about a pint and a half of unsweetened applesauce from 2 or 3 cooking apples.

The 3 tsp baking powder can be replaced with 1 tsp baking soda.

Butter and Margarine: Butter is a dairy product made from cow’s milk. Margarine typically contains milk or soy, but there are milk-free and soy-free versions available.
Corn Substitutions: Corn is a common ingredient in products. Starch, modified food starch, dextrin and maltodextrin can be from corn. Consult with your physician to find out which corn derivatives you need to avoid. Many corn-free options are available in the US. Find out more about corn substitutions.
Gluten: Gluten is a protein found in specific grains (wheat, spelt, kamut, barley, rye). Other grains are naturally gluten-free but may have cross-contact with gluten-containing grains. Look for certified gluten-free products if you need to avoid gluten. Find out more about wheat and gluten substitutions.
