Applesauce Cake

Applesauce Cake
350*F 40-60 minutes 9x12pan

will make 72 mini muffins 20 minutes bake time  

3.5 cups flour = 437.5 grams
2 t baking soda
1 t salt
1 t cloves
2 t cinnamon
2 t ginger
1.5 cups sugar
1 cup oil
2 cups applesauce
1 cup raisins (optional - i personally omit)

This is an old recipe of my mother’s/grandmother’s. It’s a really moist and tasty cake. Added bonus is that it’s dairy free and egg free for those watching those allergens.
This recipe is EXTREMELY easy to convert gluten free. Just use your favorite 'flour blend' - straight sub and add 1/4 - 1/2 t xantham gum. will cook up wonderfully in similar time frame - if you make as cupcakes instead of sheet cake. no one will ever know it's high in protein (bean based flours) unless you tell them! :)

PKU info:  this is my conversion on protein content:  437.5 grams flour/72 (if making mini muffins) = 6.08 grams flour/serving.  if one uses the assumption that all-purpose flour has 11% protein (range is 10-12%), then there is 0.67 grams of protein in these muffins (none of the other ingredients have any protein).
