This is the best ever applesauce cake, this recipe came with my mom's new Sunbeam Electric Skillet Cookbook from Sears back in 1958. Its has been a family favorite for many years and very quick and easy to make when company showed up by surprise on the weekends. You can add your own favorite frosting, Or just serve warm with vanilla ice cream! Enjoy!!
