Applesauce Cake

Another favorite when I was younger- it's really yummy when it's warm! I'm sure you could add a drizzle or frosting, but it's delicious without!

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1 1/2 cups applesauce
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup shortening
2 eggs

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 13 x9 pan or 2 round pans. Beat all ingredients on low for 30 seconds, then on high for 3 minutes. Pour into pans, and bake until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 60-65 minutes for a 13 x 9, and about 50-55 minutes for 2 rounds. OR cut the recipe in half, pour into a 9 x9, and bake for 50-55 minutes.
