Whenever you came to visit my Gram from what she considered quite a distance.. there was always a cake waiting. My favorite was Applesauce Cake or Boiled Raisin Cake.
This Applesauce Cake is so moist and has great flavor. Gram always said to make a cake the day before you wanted to serve it so that the flavors could develope.

How to Make Applesauce Cake


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
