This would make nice gifts.
1 large can (24 oz) of apple sauce, or 3 cups of peeled, chopped apples.
3 cups flour (all purpose)
1 cup corn oil
1 ½ cups chopped walnuts or hazelnuts, pecans, etc
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon allspice
½ teaspoon salt
½ cup raisins, currants, or chopped dates
Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees F.
Grease and flour 6 or 8 wide mouth PINT jars. Fill the jars about HALF full with cake batter. Bake at 325 for about 30 minutes, or until a tooth pick comes out dry. Remove the jars from the oven ONE at a time, wipe the rim, then cap with simmered canning lid and secure the ring. Cool the jars on a towel until they "ping" and seal. Store on a dark, cool shelf.
