Applesauce Cake With Cream Cheese Frosting

Applesauce Cake With Cream Cheese Frosting created by Chef shapeweaver

I was looking through an old Fannie Farmer Cookbook, and came across this recipe.The original recipe made a 2-layer cake, but I cut it down to just make a smaller snack size type of cake.I put 25 minutes as the baking time,but you might want to check after 20.After mixing frosting ingredients, you might want to add a bit more powdered sugar to get the desired thickness.

    Was very tasty and moist but as written (with 3/4 tsp baking soda) the cake caved in a bit. I discovered the mistake after adding the soda and tried to correct the problem by adding 3/4 tsp baking powder in addition but the cake still caved. I will try to re-review after I make it again with what was probably the intended ingredient only: baking powder.
