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

Step-By-Step

1Mix 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.
2Pour 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.
3Heat oven to 350 degrees. Bake 1 hour and 10 mins. Toothpick test should be slightly damp. Otherwise cake is dry.
4Remove 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.
5When 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.
