Let 'Em Eat Cake - Mini Gingerbread Cakes and Applesauce-Raisin Tube Cake Recipes


We turn to cake for almost every occasion. We celebrate with cake, we share cake with family and friends over coffee, or we like to top off a fantastic meal with a piece of cake. We even enjoy giving cakes as gifts from time to time or to certain people in our lives. Add these recipes to your cake recipe files. The Mini Gingerbread Cakes are baked in jumbo muffin tins to create the perfect size for gift giving or for a buffet table. The Applesauce-Raisin Cake is from my collection of old fashion recipes, this being one enjoyed for years by family and friends.
1/4 cup molasses
1/2 cup boiling water
3/4 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp salt
6 tbsp butter, softened
2/3 cup granulate sugar
2 large eggs
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a small bowl blend the molasses, boiling water, and baking soda; mixture will bubble.
In another bowl mix the flour, baking powder, ginger, cinnamon, cloves, and salt together.
In a large mixing bowl beat the butter and granulated sugar for 2 minutes. Beat in the eggs. Stir in the flour mixture alternating with the molasses mixture, beginning and ending with the flour. Pour the batter into jumbo muffin cups that have been sprayed with nonstick baking spray.
Bake cakes at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until the cakes test done. Cool in the pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Invert pan and remove from cakes. Allow cakes to cool completely on the wire rack.
Decorate with green and red icing drizzle, if desired. To make frosting for drizzle, blend 2 cups of powdered sugar with 3 tablespoons of water. Add water a drip at a time if too stiff.
1 cup butter or oleo, softened
2 cups granulated sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 cups applesauce
2 1/2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoon soda
1 1/2 tsp salt
3/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp allspice
1/2 cup water
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup raisins
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease and flour a 10-inch tube pan and set aside.
In mixer bowl combine the butter or oleo, sugar, egg, and applesauce. Beat until light. Mix flour, soda, salt, cinnamon, cloves, and allspice. Add to the applesauce mixture alternately with the water, mixing well after each. Fold in the walnuts and raisins. Pour into the tube pan and bake for 50 to 60 minutes or until the cake tests done.
