  • 1 cup unsweetened applesauce

  6. Fold in the chopped walnuts and raisins until evenly distributed throughout the batter.
  7. Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan and spread it out evenly with a spatula.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for 35-40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  9. Allow the cake to cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely.
