Blackwater River – Webster, NH

The leaves were flying today. The rain and wind we have been having is not being gentle to the trees and foliage. I love October though! I have been decorating my apartment for Halloween. I still have a few more things to get out of storage and put them out.

October is also a season of delicious apples – fresh from the orchards. I figured I would share my mom’s favorite Applesauce Cake.

Applesauce Cake

1 cup applesauce
7/8 cup (little less) brown sugar
1/2 cup liquid shortening (aka – oil)

Then add:
1 3/4 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. cloves
1/2 cup nuts & raisins

Bake 40 minutes at 350 degrees.
