1 cup seedless raisins
1/2 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp salt
2 1/4 cups sifted flour or 2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp cloves
1/2 cup chopped nut meats
1 cup Comstock applesauce

Put raisins in wire strainer or colander over boiling water in a covered kettle; steam 5 minutes or until raisins are plump. Cream shortening; add sugar and vanilla; cream until fluffy. Add egg and beat thoroughly. Sift together flour, baking powder, salt, soda and spices. Combine dry ingredients with nut meats and raisins. Add to creamed mixture alternately with apple sauce mixing well after each addition. Use a 7 1/2 x 12" pan. Bake 45 minutes at 350 or until cake springs back when lightly touched in the center. Cool slightly; remove from pan. This cake improves in flavor and texture upon standing wrapped 1 day before serving.
