Easy No-Wheat Applesauce Cake

“This recipe is a moist cake that has the buttery flavor of Kamut, while not too overpoweringly sweet.”

Yield: 15 servings
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Baking Time 25-30 minutes

  • 2 cups Kamut flour, freshly ground if possible
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 3/4 cups seedless raisins
  • 1/2 cups natural, expeller-pressed oil
  • 1/2 cups honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups unsweetened applesauce

Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl. Mix wet ingredients in another bowl and add to dry ingredients, stirring until all is moistened. Do not overmix.

Pour into a lightly oiled 9 x 13 pan. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 25 – 30 minutes or until knife inserted in middle comes out clean. Cake should spring back when touched in the center.
Let cool. ENJOY!

Serving Ideas: Serve with chilled applesauce or cantaloupe.

Variations: Substitute fresh or frozen blueberries or any dried fruit for the raisins.

Notes: This is a quick tasty dessert for company or everyday dinner. Served with fresh fruit, it makes a light summer treat. On those days when cooking is difficult, this is a nice pick-me-up that is simple and quick to prepare. Our children enjoy a piece of this cake with applesauce or fruit for an afternoon snack. Whole wheat pastry flour works in this recipe as well.
