How to Bake a Cake from Scratch

Toss the boxed cake mix and learn how to bake a cake from scratch. Nothing tastes better than homemade!

In a medium saucepan combine raisins, dried cherries and apple cider; bring to boiling. Reduce heat and boil gently, uncovered, for 30 to 35 minutes or until liquid is almost absorbed. Remove from heat and cool about 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, grease and lightly flour a 10-inch fluted tube pan; set aside.
In a large mixing bowl combine eggs, applesauce, oil and vanilla. In a medium bowl combine flours, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg and cloves; stir into applesauce mixture just until combined. Add raisin mixture and nuts. Transfer to prepared pan.
Bake in a 350 degrees F. oven for 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack 15 minutes; remove and cool completely. Wrap and store overnight before serving. Sprinkle with powdered sugar before slicing. Makes 10 servings.
