Recipe by ClareVH

My mom says that her mom got this recipe from Grandma Osborne, which means it is a very old recipe. Unfortunately, no one knows exactly who "Grandma Osborne" was...Fortunately, she left us a moist old-fashioned applesauce cake. My mom never frosted this cake. I like it warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
