1 tsp. freshly grated nutmeg
1/4 tsp. ground cloves
1 c. raisins

1/4 c. cocoa
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 c. boiling water
1/4 c. butter
1/2 tsp. vanilla

Stir together the flour, soda, baking powder, and spices. In a separate bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg and then slowly add a portion of the dry ingredients, then a little of the applesauce, and continue alternating wet and dry ingredients, beginning and ending with dry ingredients. Add the raisins, walnuts, and vanilla at the end. Turn into a greased and floured pan, and bake at 350-- 35 to 40 minutes or until cake tests done. To test for doneness inserted toothpick into the center of the cake -- it should remain clean when removed. Cool the cake in the pan.

Now the fun begins. Either top it with confectioners' sugar---which is fine....or:
