Applesauce and cinnamon smell so good in the oven! And let me just say that this is a very moist cake and the rum flavored frosting combined with the cinnamon in the cake is just to-die-for. The recipe makes a small cake, perfect for small family dessert. Recipe originally from the Betty Crocker website.
