This traditional cake from colonial America is soft, light, super moist and low fat. Applesauce Cake with Caramel Glaze is the perfect addition to your Thanksgiving table.
Applesauce Cake is a very traditional cake, dating back to colonial times. In fact there is even a National Applesauce Cake day every year on June 6th. As I love history as much as the study of cuisine, I have always watched period TV and movies. My current obsession is Peaky Blinders. Two of my favorite TV shows growing up were Little House on the Prairie and reruns of the Waltons. I always remember that John Boy’s favorite cake was Applesauce Cake so it was finally time for me to create my own version of his favorite cake.
Heavily spiced, but very moist and light it’s the colonial version of a low fat cake with no milk and only 1 egg. You can even make it healthier if you like, by substituting half of the flour for whole wheat or other whole grain flours.
