Pumpkin Applesauce Cake

Adapted from Pumpkin Applesauce Cake  http://www.chinesegrandma.com/2010/10/pumpkin-applesauce-cake/ which was adapted from Paula Deen’s pumpkin bar recipe.
  • 4 eggs
  • 1   1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 15-ounce can pumpkin
  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 1/2  teaspoons ground Cassia cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.  Grease a 13″x 10″ baking pan, or two 8″x8″ baking pans.  (I use one 8×8 and one 9×9.)
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the eggs, sugar, oil, applesauce and pumpkin. Mix well.
  3. In separate bowl mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the pumpkin mixture and mix just until combined and the batter is smooth.
  5. Spread the batter into a greased pan(s). Bake until toothpick in center comes out clean, 30-40 minutes. Dust with powdered sugar just before serving, or cool completely before icing.
