Dateappletastic Cake!

Thank God for Moms and Grandmas! Check out the link, my Mom is compiling all my Grandmother's recipes on this website. ALL her recipes! The queen of cakes, cookies and is cyber bound! This recipe converted to GF very nicely. We have found that GF baking is much more successful when the recipe includes fruit puree. Enjoy! Thanks Barb and Val! Love you both : )

1 ¾ cups flour
½ cup shortening
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
½ cup dates or raisins
1 ½ cups apple sauce
½ cup nuts
1 teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon cloves
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon soda
¾ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla

I think your mom is busier in retirement than when she was teaching! Man, that's a lot of recipes.
