We served this cake at one of our Harvest Tea Parties. The hot butter sauce just makes this mildly sweet apple cake so scrumptious.

  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups thick applesauce
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon fresh grated nutmeg
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour a 10″ tube pan. In large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar together until fluffy. Beat in one egg at a time. Sitr in applesauce and vanilla.
    In a medium bowl, sift together flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, and baking soda. Gradually add flour mixture to applesauce mixture and blend thoroughly. Pour batter evenly into tube pan. Bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean. Cook in pan for 15 minutes. Turn out on rack to cool.
