1 1/2 stick margarine
2 tbsp. sweetener (or to taste - I
usually put in more)
1 c. chopped dates or raisins
1 1/2 c. unsweetened applesauce
1 c. pecans, chopped
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. cloves
1 tsp. vanilla
2 tsp. soda
2 c. plus 2 tbsp. all-purpose flour

Have margarine at room temperature. Mix margarine, applesauce, sweetening, sifted flour, soda, cloves, and cinnamon together. Put pecans, raisins, or dates in bowl and add a few spoons of the flour mixture; stir until the pecans and fruit are coated. Mix well and bake in tube pan. Line bottom of pan with wax paper. This cake tastes like fruit cake.
