(Vegan!) Applesauce Cake

I didn't take a picture, but we ate more than half of it at Women Who Hack today, and the recipe was requested.

1/2 c oil
1 1/2 c sugar (sometimes I make these scant half cups as I'm measuring)
1 1/2 c applesauce
2 c flour
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp cloves
1/4 tsp nutmeg
2 handfuls of raisins

45 minutes at 350 degrees in a greased bundt pan.

My actual recipe just says "spices" but the cinnamon/cloves/nutmeg combo above is what I used this time.
It's great with vanilla or cream cheese frosting. It's great plain. You can keep all this stuff in your pantry, especially if you can find canned applesauce (it uses just under a can worth.)
