Wheat-free Applesauce Cake
Taken from "The Quaker Oats Company Wheat, Milk and Egg Free Recipes". These date back to the 1950's.
Pour batter into greased 8-inch square baking pan. Bake in preheated moderate oven 350 degrees, 35-40 minutes. Cool; cover pan and store one day before serving. Makes one 8" cake.
Grind oats by running Quaker (or similar) either quick or regular oatmeal in a blender or food processor (I use Quick Oatmeal!) Combine ground oats, sugar, salt, baking soda, and spices in mixing bowl. Add shortening, eggs and vanilla. Beat until smooth, about 2 minutes. Stir in applesauce and raisins (optional).
