I made this as a special request from my fiance. We both thought it tasted fine but there was nothing special about it. Maybe it should be a little sweeter. Oh well. Edit: The next day it was much sweeter. I guess it just needed some time for the flavors to settle. It also stayed very moist for a full week. I also forgot to mention that I made my own applesauce for this recipe and I added a glaze. My fiance wanted an applesauce cake like his Grandma used to make so I did my best to accommodate.

I made some adaptations from this recipe to make muffins. It was truly flavourful and my kids just loved the muffins. I used only half of the flour and added oatmeal for the rest. Simple change and made a hit with the kids. Thanks!

For us this is an excellent applesauce cake. some recipes are more like breads but because pf the cake and pastry flour this is definitely a cake. Much lighter than most and keeps so well. I do make it with half shortening and half butter because of flavor. Thanks for a lovely addition to my files.
