Applesauce bars

Yield: 18 servings

Measure Ingredient
2 cups All-purpose flour;
⅓ cup Sugar;
Dry sugar sub equal to 3/4 c
1 teaspoon Cinnamon;
½ teaspoon Nutmeg;
¼ teaspoon Cloves;
1½ cup Unsweetened applesaue; hot
2 teaspoons Baking soda;
½ cup Walnuts; chopped
¼ cup Rasins;

Place flour, sugar, dry sugar substitute, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves in mixer bowl and mix a low speed to blend well. Combine HOT applesause and baking soda ( don't try to be modern and use cold applesause and mix with baking soda with the flour; it doesn't work as well that way), and add, along with oil, walnuts and raisins, to flour mixture. Mix at medium speed until flour is moistened and batter in creamy. Spread batter evenly in a 9" by 13" cake pan that has been sprayed with pan spray or greased well with margarine. Bake at 375 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes, or till bars pull away from the sides of the pan and a cake tester comes out clean from the center.

Cool on a wire rack. Cut three by six.
