Prep:

20 Min

Cook:

1 Hr 10 Min

Ingredients

4 c
all purpose flour
6 Tbsp
cocoa powder
2 c
sugar
2 Tbsp
cornstarch
4 tsp
soda
2 tsp
cinnamon
1 tsp
cloves
1 tsp
nutmeg
1 c
candied fruit
2 c
raisins (may use half dark and half golden)
2 c
chopped nuts
3 c
applesauce
1 c
mazola corn oil
2 tsp
vanilla
topping
2 c
powdered sugar
2 Tbsp
butter, room temperature
2 Tbsp
bourbon, brandy, spiced or plain rum

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Mix in order. I mix by hand as it is hard to mix. But do it in order so that fruit and raisins will be coated with dry ingreidents.
2
Pour into pans but grease and flour them. You can use a bundt pan also. When giving as gifts, I use small loaf pans. (Mini) and give 1 per person.
3
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Bake 1 hour and 10 mins. Toothpick test should be slightly damp. Otherwise cake is dry.
4
Remove from pans. Cool. May brush with same as you used above, (bourbon, brandy, spiced rum, or plain rum.) lightly on all sides with a small paint brush or pastry brush. Store wrapped in plastic wrap and then heavy foil.
5
When serving, stir topping ingredients together and drissel on top. If giving as gifts, Mix topping and put enough in a snack zip lock baggie. Scotch tape to ribbon on top and put on card to snip 1 corner of baggie and drissel over cake. May also add the receipe.
