Spiced Applesauce Cake

Spiced Applesauce Cake

I wish I remembered where this recipe came from. I have a piece of flowered stationery, a little crinkled around the edges, creased from being folded many times, with the recipe written on it. It is not my handwriting. I would love to credit the source of this wonderful recipe.

As a kid, I loved eating applesauce, right out of the jar. I still do. I admit to being spoiled these days, because I make, and can, my own sauce.

You don’t have to limit yourself to just eating applesauce as is. You can bake with it, too.  This cake is one way to enjoy applesauce, homemade or store bought. I used butter in the recipe, but if you used coconut oil instead, the recipe would be vegan.  The spices work so well together. Simple and full of flavor.



Before someone asks, there is not a mistake, there are no eggs in the recipe.
