1/2 Cup(s) Vegetable shortening
1 Cup(s) Sugar
1/2 Teaspoon(s) Cloves
1 Teaspoon(s) Cinnamon
1 Egg
1 Cup(s) Applesauce
2 Cup(s) All-Purpose Flour

Cream together shortening and sugar. Add egg; beat well. Sift together
flour, soda, salt, cloves, and cinnamon. Add alternately with
applesauce to creamed mixture. Add raisins and nutmeats. Pour into
9-inch greased tube pan. Bake in moderate oven (350 degrees) for 1
hour. Let stand until cold. Remove cake from pan. I have a book called
"Cooking Behind the Fence: Recipes and Recollections from the Oak
Ridge '43 Club." (c1992) It features recipes from the '40s when Oak
Ridge, TN was fenced and people had to have a security clearance to
get in. I picked one recipe for you. If you have any particular kind
of recipe you would be interested in let me know. The person who
supplied this recipe remembers that there was only one grocery store
in the area back in 1943 and she remembers waiting in line for 2 hours
to buy soap powder. Recipe By : "Cooking Behind the Fence: Oak
Ridge 1943 Club" Cookbook From: Ladies Home Journal- August 1991
