Happy National Applesauce Cake Day! Can you believe it, two cakes in the same week on this site! It’s like cake week around here … You know, just like shark week except with cake.

Applesauce Cake

This simple cake is very moist and packed full of apple and cinnamon flavors. It is easy and fairly healthy as far as desserts go. Dear hubby says he likes it but he keeps going back to the light gingerbread cake that’s still on the kitchen counter. I bet if I put the gingerbread in the freezer for later, he’ll go to town on this one because I even made some cream cheese frosting … yum :-)

Still waiting for my replacement lights to arrive so please excuse the pics :-)

What do you think?

  1. I must try this recipe, but I have a question. Why not use 2 cups white whole wheat flour? What is the reasoning for using half whole wheat? Just wondering.
