• Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 1/4 cups white sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 cups applesauce
  • 2 tablespoons dark rum
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup dark rum

Directions

  • In a bowl, cream the butter or margarine with the sugar. Beat in the milk, applesauce, and 2 tablespoons of rum.
  • In another bowl, stir together the flour, cocoa, baking soda, spices, and salt. Beat into the creamed mixture and then stir in the raisins and pecans.
  • Turn the batter into a greased and floured 9×13 inch baking pan. Bake the cake in a preheated 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) oven for 45 minutes, or until it tests done with a toothpick.
