2. Remove 1/2 cup flour mixture to a small bowl; stir in raisins and nuts.

3. Add remaining flour mixture to the creamed mixture alternately with applesauce, beating well after each addition.

Stir in raisin mixture.

4. Pour batter into a greased and floured 10-in. fluted tube pan.

5. Bake at 350? for 65-75 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.

Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.

Notes

My mother-in-law gave me this recipe but she boils the applesauce and pours it over the flour mixture with the baking soda on top (it will bubble). She then stirs in the butter, sugar mixture.
