Another delicious addition from my Aunt's recipe collection. This is simple and sweet. I first remember having it one Christmas morning at her house when I was about 8. Brings back happy memories....

I ate 2 slices and want a third! Very easy. I think I`ll e-mail this to my daughter to make.

Very tasty! I used spice cake mix instead of yellow, brown sugar, and added a little nutmeg. Not too heavy on the sweetness, which is just the way I like it.

I admit that it is an easy cake. It used to be my son's favorite cake when he was little. I really do not love applesauce in any form, but I made it again in honor of my son and DH and picky daughter liked it. the other good thing is that it uses cupboard staples.
