    lynnski / LA's Note:

    This delicious depression era cake calls for just 1 tablespoons of butter. It's also called Poor Man's Cake. It's a good cake for anyone who wants a reduced fat cake, or one that does not contain eggs. If you don't have applesauce on hand you can substitute 2/3 cup of coffee... can't beat that one for economy. I love these old recipes, it's a glimpse into the past, this one was published in the Los Angeles Times, food section about 20 years ago.
