Fruitcake: From Grandma's Kitchen

Fruitcake. You know it was going to show up at some point. Thought I'd get it over with.


1 1/2 cups butter
3 cups sugar
3 cups sweetened applesauce
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg (if desired)
6 cups flour
4 teaspoons baking soda
1 pound mixed candied fruit
1 pound candied cherries
4 cups raisins
3 cups walnuts (if desired)

Sprinkle flour over the fruit and nuts. Mix together. Grease and line pans with brown paper. Grease again. Bake 1 1/2 hours at 325 degrees or until brown. Makes 4 or 5 cakes.
