My great-grandmother was the best baker! and cook btw. She never used a recipe, only her mind. A pinch of this a scoop of that, then throw in some black walnuts and get the picture.

Well my family has been trying to recreate her applesauce cake since 1990 when we had to tell her that at 90 years old it just wasn't safe for her to be around the stove.

Long story short...POST YOUR APPLESAUCE RECIPES HERE...please
This is one that we make from our local Apple Hill... it's very good.

3 cups all-purpose flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
4 eggs
2 cups white sugar
1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
2 cups applesauce
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Grease and flour a 10 inch tube pan.
Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Set aside.
In a large bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.
Make a well in the center and pour in the eggs, sugar, oil, applesauce and vanilla.
Mix well and pour into prepared pan.
Bake in the preheated oven for 50 to 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
Let cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack and cool completely.
This recipe is taken from the Church Supper Cookbook edited by
David Joachim. The recipe is by Karen Russ, The Congregational Church, East Hampton, Connecticut. It makes a fruitcake-textured spice cake that keeps well.
