When I was growing up my Father was in the Amy and we spent alot of time in Germany, we had a family friend we called Big Momma, I always pretended to cook and loved to bake. My Big Momma gave me a recipe for this Applesauce Spice cake back in the early 60's and when I got out on my own it has been a tradition in my family every Thanksgiving and has won 2 Blue Ribbons in the Wayne Co. Agriculture Fair for 2 years in a row.
