This applesauce spice cake is another quick and easy mix in the pan cake, so there are no bowls or beaters to wash because all the ingredients are just measured into the baking pan and mixed. Easy to make and very, very good… this recipe is a keeper!

1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons ground allspice
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup applesauce
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vinegar

Heat oven to 350°F.

Measure all the dry ingredients (flour, brown sugar, baking soda, allspice, and salt) into the 8-inch UNGREASED square pan. Use a whisk to mix all the dry ingredients together.

Pour the wet ingredients (water, applesauce, oil, and vinegar) into the flour mixture and stir until all the ingredients are thoroughly mixed together, but do not beat or over-mix.

Bake for approximately 35 minutes or until a toothpick or knife inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean. Serve plain or dust with powdered sugar.
