Hunting through my old recipes, I came up with several desserts that do not use eggs. As my way of being helpful to budget-wise cooks out there, though not helpful at all to egg farmers, I will be sharing some of these recipes with my readers.
We are heading to Michigan (one of my favorite places) this week for a two-week vacation. While we are gone, no-egg dessert recipes will appear on this blog. These are recipes our family has enjoyed for many years.
The recipe below for applesauce cake is exhibit one in defense of deliciousness without eggs. It is always a crowd pleaser.

1 c. butter
2 c. applesauce
1 c. raisins
1 c. nuts
