Applesauce Spice Cake

"I got this recipe years ago from a cookbook. I love this applesauce spice cake with cream cheese frosting or a homemade buttercream. My family thinks this is a very good moist cake. I have used regular milk in the place of buttermilk."

    Mmmmm... What a scrumptious spice cake! Just the way we love spice cakes: subtle. The spices do not knock you over the head with this cake. I used 1 stick of butter in place of the margarine and shortening, and I added 1/2 t. salt to the batter. Also I mixed this together using a more conventional method (i.e., creamed butter and sugar until light and fluffy; added eggs and vanilla, then dry ingredients alternating with the buttermilk, and mixing in the applesauce last.) I used unsweetened applesauce. I don't think this cake even needs frosting -- it's perfectly moist and irresistible straight from the oven. Love this!! Thanks!

<p>Square Meals Make Round People - Author Unknown <br /><br />Do It With Love---It Will Taste Better - Author Unknown <br /><br />I joined zaar in 2002 but I really didn't use it much on until 2006 after my computer crashed and I lost all my unsaved recipes. Now I post all recipes I've tried or would like to try. I'm actually making it my goal to try almost all the recipes I've posted as soon as I can. I love food and I love to eat and try different recipes. My favorite course is dessert. I love sweets! This leads me to that I did have Gastric Bypass surgery on July 25th 2008. On that note I love baking and cooking a priceless gift passed down from my grammy who I dearly loved and miss deeply. My grammy passed away 1/15/07. She was a wonderful cook and baker and taught me many things and the most valueable things was how to be a wonderful cook and baker like her. I really enjoy searching for new recipes especially here on Zaar. I'm always finding and adding to my cookbook new and exciting recipes. I also enjoy posting recipes here on Zaar as well. I really love collecting different cookbooks. I have over a 100 and growing! I collect mostly Taste Of Home &amp; community cookbooks. The minute I get a cookbook home I sit down and I read my cookbooks from front to back like novels. I work for the Elmira City School&nbsp;District and YWCA. I'm raising my&nbsp;8 yrs old newphew. I'm a part time college student studing Early Childhood Education, but taking time off and hoping to return soon. I live in Elmira, New York where famous writer Mark Twain did some of his writing and he once lived. I have&nbsp;1 cats Samantha and&nbsp;1 dog our newest member MOO MOO (my nieces dog) who are my children as I do not have any human children of my own. I lost&nbsp;four of my very dear children (kitty's) Callie June 2007, Miss Kitty in March 2010, my dog Angel in December 2010, and my other cat Chase in September&nbsp;2011. I'm recently&nbsp;married on August 12th 2010. I love spending time with my niece&nbsp;9 yrs old and my newphews&nbsp;7 &amp;&nbsp;8 yrs old. I enjoy couponing and trading coupons. I love the internet as there's so much to look at online even though you know where I spend most of my time! I enjoy going to yard sales and estate sales every spring - fall. I love gardening and have many different pretty flowers.</p> <p><br /><br /><img src=http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/1535/CLC2.gif alt= /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PAC08Main.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Iwasadopted.jpg alt= /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Participation.jpg alt= /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j166/ZaarNicksMom/Animation6.gif alt= /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b2/kiwidutch/my3chefs2009final-1.jpg alt= /></p> <p><img src=http://i773.photobucket.com/albums/yy17/ZaarBrenda/Participation3-1.jpg alt=http://i773.photobucket.com/albums/yy17/ZaarBrenda/Participation3-1.jpg /></p> <p><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/blacktoesPAC2011.png alt= /><br /><br />My Star Ratings: <br /><br />1 * star rating is my family did not like it and we will not make it again. <br /><br />2 ** star rating is my family thought it was ok and we might or might not make it again. <br /><br />3 *** star rating my family liked or really liked it and we probably will make it again. <br /><br />4 **** star rating is my family loved or really loved it and we will have it again. <br /><br />5 ***** star rating is my family thinks it's outstanding and we could have it again tomorrow. <br /><br />No star rating is my family has not tried it but would like to try it.</p>
