My Mothers Applesauce Spice Cake

This recipe was also put on JAP by my Daughter Diana Porter from Osage Wy. It is one of my very favorite cakes and can even be turned into a fruit cake by just adding mixed fruit, purchased in the grocery stores. My Mother made it a lot and I'm so glad Diana is also making a lot of her Grandmother's recipes. I hope you all enjoy it.
