Applesauce Cake?

I'm trying to find a recipe for applesauce cake that I remember from childhood. It was always baked for Christmas (not a fruit cake). It was extremely moist with raisins, walnuts, and maraschino cherries. The cake was really dark and was baked in a tube pan. No one in my family can find the recipe. Would any one out there have this cake recipe, please, and be willing to share it with us? I'd love to bake it for Christmas, ahh the memories :-)
