How to Make Applesauce Fruitcake

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.
