Applesauce Cake

Applesauce cake is one of those great old fashioned desserts. It is a frugal, yet really good dessert. It is a dessert that many of our grandmothers and great grandmothers made for many years. This is what I call a comfort food type dessert. An easy and simple dessert, made from everyday ingredients that most of us have in our cupboards.

There are many versions of applesauce cake. This one is adapted from a Paula Deen recipe and it is really good.

Tomorrow I will post the gluten free version of this cake that I came up with.

  2. I was interested in your Applesauce cake as my Granny use to make one with layers. I’m going to attempt to duplicate hers soon. I can’t wait to see how closely it resembles it. Yours looks yummy too!

    I was writing your Applesauce Cake recipe and noticed that at the end of the recipe it mentioned nutmeg. It was not in your list of ingredents. I assume that it would call for 1 teaspoon, like the cinnamom!!!

    • Yes, my husband does not like nutmeg, so I always leave it out, but try to add it to recipes on my site since most do enjoy it. Sorry about that.
