Applesauce Spice Cake

Directions

  1. Grease a 13x9x2-inch baking pan or grease and lightly flour two 8x1-1/2-inch round baking pans; set pan(s) aside. Stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and ginger; set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl beat butter and shortening with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add sugar and vanilla; beat until well combined. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each. Add dry mixture, buttermilk and applesauce alternately to beaten mixture, beating on low speed after each addition just until combined. Pour into prepared pan(s).
  3. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 35 to 40 minutes for 13x9-inch pan or 30 to 35 minutes for round pans or until a wooden toothpick comes out clean. Place 13x9-inch cake in pan on a wire rack; cool thoroughly. Or, cool layer cakes on wire racks for 10 minutes. Remove layer cakes from pans. Cool thoroughly on wire racks. Frost as desired.

From the Test Kitchen

*

If you don't have buttermilk on hand, substitute sour milk in the same amount. For the 1/4 cup of sour milk needed, place 3/4 teaspoon lemon juice or vinegar in a glass measuring cup. Add enough milk to make 1/4 cup total liquid; stir. Let the mixture stand for 5 minutes before using it in a recipe.
