Chris' Pennsylvania Dutch Applesauce Cake

For as long as I can remember, my mom, who many considered the best cook in my hometown of Rochester, NY, made this delicious, moist cake. Everyone loved it. It is easy, easy, easy and best of all I can make it in a pinch because the ingredients are always on hand. It was and is my ultimate comfort food--simply delicious warm or cold. I hope it becomes one of your favorites as well.

With mixer on low, add sifted dry ingredients alternately with the applesauce to the creamed mixture.
