Wonderful Applesauce Spice Cake

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

There are many different recipes for applesauce cake this one has remained a favorite, it's a really moist cake with tons of flavor, there is really no need for frosting just top with a couple of tablespoons of whipped cream or Cool Whip topping --- if you are using sweetened applesauce I suggest to maybe cut down the sugar slightly unless you prefer a sweeter cake --- I think you will really enjoy this cake!
