Bake a vegan applesauce cake today!

With pecans! To make an easy, easy vegan applesauce cake, mix together about 3/4 cup applesauce, 1/2 cup sugar, and 1/4 canola oil. In another bowl, mix a couple of cups of unbleached flour, about 1/2 tsp baking soda, a scant 1 1/2 tsp baking powder, a pinch of salt, a bit of cinnamon, the tiniest pinch of cardamom if you have it, and a handful of nuts. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and combine with as few strokes as possible to keep the batter from getting tough. Pour into a lightly oiled loaf pan or a square Pyrex.

Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes, then turn the oven down to 350 and continue baking until a knife inserted into the center comes out crumb-free.
