 Ingredients List

  • 2/3 c Shortening
  • 2 2/3 c Sugar
  • 4 Eggs
  • 2 c Applesauce
  • 2/3 c Water
  • 3 1/3 c All-purpose flo sifted
  • 1/2 ts Baking powder
  • 2 ts Baking soda
  • 1 1/2 ts Salt
  • 1 ts Cinnamon
  • 2 ts Ground cloves
  • 2/3 c Nuts, chopped (optional)


Preheat oven to 325-degrees.

Sterilize 5 straight-sided Ball Quilted Crystal (#14400- 81400) canning
jars, lids and rings by boiling them for 15 minutes. Keep the lids and
rings in the water until you're ready to use them. Remove the jars from the
water and place them on a clean dish towel to air-dry (up, not upside
down). When the jars are cool enough to handle, grease the insides with
shortening (DO NOT use butter, margarine, PAM or Baker's Secret); set

Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and
cloves; set aside.

Cream together the shortening and sugar. Beat in the eggs, one at a time
until the mixture is light and fluffy. Add the applesauce and water. Blend
the dry ingredients into the applesauce mixture. Fold in the nuts.; set
aside. Fill well greased jars half full. Place the jars onto a cookie sheet
or they'll tip over.

Bake for 35 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean. like you
would any canned goods.

The method for making the cakes is the same no matter which recipe you
use. The only difference will be the ingredients (of course), the amount of
jars needed and the baking times- -that's all, everything else is the same.
Don't limit yourself to the recipes I'm giving you use your favorite
quick-bread recipe. I plan on trying the Carrot Cake recipe I posted.
