Updated: Nov 12, 2018
From Lois Mitchell.
This is a tried and true recipe that left me eating over half the cake, well it was warm, in one sitting. Okay, actually I was standing at my sink, (don't tell anyone)!
This is very much like the cake Garnet Cloud used to make .
1 cup sugar
½ cup Crisco
Add 2 eggs, one at a time, beat well
Sift; 2 cups flour, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, ½ teaspoon nutmeg, 1 teaspoon baking soda
and ½ teaspoon salt.
Add cream mixture, beat well
Mix 1½ cups applesauce and 1 teaspoon vanilla, mix well
Add 1 cup Hickory nuts, mix well
Pour into a greased and floured 9 x 13 pan and bake at 350 for 30 to 35 minutes
Let cool 10 minutes.
Spread Caramel frosting over warm cake.
