I made this tonight, and it was so delicious. I finished it off in the oven just to make sure it was baked through. I served it with spaghetti and marinara sauce, salad and hard rolls. EVERYONE loved it, how often can you say that? AND it was quick. This one is a keeper.
From Family Fun Magazine: "Crisp fall weekends bring on hearty appetites, and this single-layer cake, which owes much of its moist sweetness to applesauce, is a sure way to satisfy. A quartet of baking spices and vanilla extract give it a distinctive flavor -- and provide lots of opportunity for budding bakers to measure and mix. It's a special treat to come home to after a game of soccer or an afternoon walk in the woods."
