    Pierre Dance's Note:

    In my misspent youth this was my favorite munchie food. It was quick, easy and the smell coming from the oven would drive us crazy. It stands alone without frosting but it is killer with Seven minute Vanilla frosting. (see my recipes)

      I'm away from home and my cookbooks, and looking for the applesauce cake recipe from the Fanny Farmer cookbook. This is the one! (Except Fanny Farmer calls for regular raisins.) And it IS a great recipe - moist and flavorful and easy. I grew up with it, and make it for my kids now - except with half whole wheat flour sometimes. Thanks for posting.

      This cake is very tasty, really moist, and best of all is so quick and easy to make with simple ingredients - all from the pantry. No eggs, milk, etc. I didn't add the nuts due to consideration for the other members of my family, but next time I'll add them. I did ice it, but it really didn't need the icing. The only other thing I changed was to put it in an 8 X 8 pan and cook for 30 minutes, and I'm glad I did. Even with about half the recommended pan size, the cake is only about an inch high. I think the 9 X 13 pan baking for 40 minutes would have totally overcooked it. Thanks for sharing this delicious recipe pierre.
