Sourdough Applesauce Cake

Sourdough Applesauce Cake

1 cup sourdough starter
1/4 cup dry skim milk
1 cup unbleached flour
1 cup applesauce
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 large egg, well beaten
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon allspice
1/2 teaspoon cloves
2 teaspoons baking soda

Mix together the starter, milk, flour, and applesauce, and let stand in a covered bowl in a warm place.  Cream together the sugars and butter. Add the beaten egg and mix well. Add baking soda and spices . You may also add 1/2 cup raisins or chopped nuts, or a combination of both. Beat by hand until well mixed and no lumps remain. Bake at 350 degrees F for 30 to 40 minutes. Test for doneness with a knife when half an hour is up. Allow to cool until cold before cutting and serving.
