A very good spice cake that's easy to make and not overly sweet. This cake is lower in fat than most, and the whole wheat adds to the fiber and nutrition.

  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 jar (15 ounces) applesauce
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 cup boiling water
  • 2-1/2 cups whole-wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup pecans, chopped


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8-inch by 12-inch baking pan.

Cream together the oil and sugar. Blend in the egg and applesauce. Dissolve the soda in the water. Sift together the flour and the spices. Alternately add the water and flour mixtures to the applesauce mixture and beat until smooth. Stir in the raisins and pecans. Pour the mixture into the pan.

Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until a tester inserted near the center comes out clean. Serve warm or cooled, directly out of the pan.
