   shortening for 30 seconds. Add the sugars and egg; beat
   until combined. Stir together the flour, baking powder,
   baking soda and spices. Add flour mixture alternately with
   applesauce to butter mixture. Stir in raisins and nuts.
   Pour batter into a greased 13 x 9 x 2 inch baking pan,
   spreading evenly. Bake in a 350 oven for 30 to 35 minutes,
   or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out
   clean. Cool in pan on wire rack.

   or margarine and vanilla until light and fluffy. Gradually
   beat in powdered sugar. Bean in powdered sugar to make a
   spreadable frosting.
   Note=  For a decorated finish, set a doily lightly on the
   frosted cake and sprinkle lightly with a mixture of
   cinnamon and nutmeg. Carefully remove the doily.  Serves
