Applesauce Cake - Gluten Free:
In a Kitchenaid bowl with a Paddle Cream:
½ Cup Shortening
2 Eggs (Whisk with a fork first)
Add: and mix in:
1 ½ Cups Unsweetened Applesauce
½ Cup Water
In a Medium Bowl Whisk together:
2 ½ Cups Gluten Free Flour (***SEE FOOT NOTE***)
1 ¾ Cup Sugar
1 ½ tsp. Baking Soda
¼ tsp. Baking Powder
1 ½ tsp. Salt
1 ½ tsp. Xanthan Gum
1 tsp. Cinnamon
1 tsp. Pumpkin Pie Spice (or ½ tsp. Allspice & ¼ tsp. Nutmeg & ¼ tsp. Cloves)
Slowly add the flour mixture to the dry ingredients on low speed.
Scrap down the bowl.
Mix on Medium Speed for 1 Minute.
Optional: Add in:
1 Cup Raisins
½ Cup Chopped Walnuts
Pour the cake batter into a 9X13 Greased Pan
Bake in 350* Pre-heated Oven
For approximately 50-55 Minutes or until done.
I use a digital thermometer.. Insert into the center of the cake when it reaches an internal Temperature of 205* the Cake is done. Cool Pan in a Wire Rack.
When the cake has completely cooled sprinkle with Powdered Sugar.
After I cut the Cake I placed the pieces on a wire rack and sprinkled on more Powdered Sugar. This cake stayed fresh in a plastic container for 3 days. It can also be frozen.

I got this recipe at the Gluten Free Expo
2 1/4 Cups Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Brown Rice Flour
1/4 Cup Bob's Red Mill Potato Starch
2/3 Cup Bob's Red Mill Tapioca Starch
3/4 Cup Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Sweet Rice Flour
1/3 Cup Cornstarch
Measure all the ingredients into a container. I used a spoon to lightly mix it together then put the cover on and shake well.
(Making sure its a tight fitting cover)
The original recipe called to add 2 tsp. Xanthan Gum
I did not do that, I like to add mine to each recipe individually.

Taylor Pro Kitchen Waterproof Digital Thermometer:
I used a digital thermometer to check the bread for when its done. Bake until 205*-210* in the center of the bread.
Its also great to check the temperature of the milk and water before adding the yeast. Its a helpful gadget.
