Hello -

Enjoy this week's classic IBS recipe made from every day pantry staples. I hope it gives some comfort for these very scary times.

Gramma's Chocolate Applesauce Cake

This is a family heirloom Depression era cake that's fast and easy to make from basic pantry staples. I grew up watching my Grams bake this cake frequently, and it is now one of my own most cherished standbys. I still follow the directions from the original recipe card written in my grandmother's lovely old-fashioned handwriting, although I have made several adaptations for IBS.

This is called a cake, but it's baked in bread loaf pans and is not really dessert-sweet. It's easily suited to breakfasts and snacks. It comes out perfectly every time, and it is dependably scrumptious. I consider this my most treasured recipe.

Bumpa, Grams, and me

Makes One 9 x 5" loaf, 16 slices per loaf

Preheat oven to 325F.

Sift together in large bowl and whisk thoroughly to combine:
2 cups all-purpose unbleached white flour
2 tablespoons Tummy Fiber Acacia
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon cloves
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt

Whisk together by hand thoroughly:
1 3/4 cups homemade or unsweetened bottled applesauce
1/4 cup canola or safflower or sunflower oil
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 cup diced raisins

Add the wet ingredients to the dry with a few swift strokes by hand, just until well blended. Pour batter into loaf pan sprayed with cooking oil. Bake for 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes, or until a toothpick or cake tester inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean. Cool on rack.

Gone gluten free? Substitute a gluten free all purpose white flour such as Bob's Red Mill.

Final step? Enjoy your cake! And if you make this, post your own picture or video results to our private Facebook Group to share!

You are not alone!
