Applesauce Raisin Bars
Source of Recipe
I don't remember
This was originally called Applesauce Raisin "Brownies". For me, no chocolate = no Brownie.
List of Ingredients
6 tbsp butter
1 1/4 C brown sugar
1/2 C applesauce
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp each salt and ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp each baking soda and ground nutmeg
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 C each raisins and chopped nuts
Orange frosting (see below)
Melt butter in small pan. Remove from heat and stir in sugar, then stir in applesauce, egg and vanilla. Stir together the dry ingredients; add applesauce mixture and blend thoroughly. Add raisins and nuts. Bake in a greased 9x13 pan at 350 for 25 minutes. When cool, frost with orange frosting if desired.
Orange frosting: 1 3/4 C powdered sugar, 2 1/2 tbsp softened butter, 2 tbsp milk, 1/2 tsp vanilla, 1/2 tsp grated orange peel.
