2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla
3 tbsp milk
1 1/2 tbsp molasses

Combine the first 7 ingredients in a bowl, stirring well. In a seperate bowl, beat the eggs, and then add the applesauce, oil, vanilla, milk, and molasses, whisking to mix well. Fold the liquid mixture into the dry mixture, and stir until just mixed. Fold in the nuts and raisins.
