    pines506's Note:

    I love applesauce cake, and this one is a little different applesauce cake as this has some cocoa in it. From a 1950s Sunbeam Mixmaster book.

      ok had a few substitutions...Margarine for Crisco (richer flavor), Dates for raisins (it's what I had), and Apple Pie spice because I was out of Nutmeg. I made it like a round layer cake and was in a hurry so I just drizzled the warm icing over the still warm cake! YUM!! Will deffinately make this again!!

      This was a pretty good cake! I skipped on the raisins, but added walnuts. The cocoa gives it a nice brown color. I'd make this again!
