HEIRLOOM FRESH APPLESAUCE CAKE

This recipe come from a 1920's cookbook. It's really good with fresh apples. Since this is apple season I thought you could use this great cake. I use Honey Crisp Apples when in season. Of course, any cooking apple will do. Even store bought apple sauce will do. It's so moist,no icing is necessary. I put this up there with my Best Carrot Cake Ever recipe and my Contest winning Rhubarb Coffee Cake. My friends and family love it. It's fabulous!
