Fall is here! Applesauce Raisin Cake

So its that time of year again: pumkins, hay bails, scarecrows, apples, cinnamon and nutmeg! Fall has come and with it comes the seasonal favorites. I could spend a lot of time telling you about all of my favorite fall recipes, but who has a lot of time? So, here is just one of my family's favorites.

Applesauce Raisin Cake
1 3/4 cups freshly milled organic brown rice flour
2-3 tablespoons of freshly ground flax
1/4 cup of shelled pumpkin seeds
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2-3/4 cup organic raisins
3/4-1 cup organic applesauce
3/4 cup organic full fat greek yogurt
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)
1/2 inch fresh organic ginger root minced (optional)
Preheat oven to 425°.
Butter the bottom of a 8 or 9 inch square glass baking pan generously with Kerrygold Butter.
In a large mixing bowl, combine dry ingredients, mixing well. Add wet ingredients; mix well with a spoon. Gently stir in raisins and pumpkin seeds. Bake in prepared pan until top is golden brown. About 20-30 minutes. (Each oven is different, so check it often.)
This is my #sugarfree #glutenfree #cornfree #dyefree #annattofree #carrageenanfree #nutfree rendition of an all time classic.
1/2 cup sugar can be added if desired, but watch for quicker browning.
Happy Baking!
