Applesauce Cake

This is the last birthday cupcake from the newspaper clippings from my Grandma. Here and here are the other two that I've posted.

1/2 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 cup apple sauce
2 tsp soda
2 cup flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cloves
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup seedless raisins
1 cup nuts
1 cup dates
1 cup Maraschino cherries

Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs. Stir soda into the applesauce. Mix raisins, cherries, nuts, dates into flour and spices. Cook at 350 degrees in a greased 9x13-inch pan for 40 minutes.

I omitted the raisin, dates, and Maraschino cherries.
