Spicy Applesauce Cake

This is my favorite applesauce cake!

I use our home- made chunky applesauce when apples are in season. If needed, put in food processor to break up big pieces and drain as needed.

This is a yummy, moist cake. Add a dollop of whipped cream or creamy frosting and it becomes an even better dessert.
