Gumdrop Spice Fruitcake
This is a lightly spiced fruitcake with gumdrops baked inside.

Part 1:

2 c applesauce 1/2 c shortening
2 c sugar 2 c raisins

Preheat oven to 300°F. Bring to boil everything in part 1 and set aside.

Part 2:

2 c small gumdrops (do no use black) 2 c chopped nuts
1 c shredded coconut 1 c flour
1 c dates, chopped 2 eggs, beaten

Put gumdrops, coconut, dates and nuts in a bowl. Sift the flour over them and toss. Add eggs and mix.

Part 3:

2 c sifted flour 1 t cinnamon
2 t baking soda 1 t ginger
  1/2 t salt

Sift all of part 3. Mix into part 2 alternately with part 1. Bake in greased and floured 10 tube pan for about 2 hours. A pan of water in the bottom of the oven will keep cake from getting too brown, but it adds to the cooking time, also.
