This is Fall baking at its finest. Apple flavor aplenty in this moist and simple Applesauce Cake. It makes great use of homemade applesauce and makes for the perfect after school snack.




  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour a 9 inch by 9inch metal baking pan. Set aside
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside
  3. In bowl of a stand mixer, beat butter and both sugars on low speed until blended. Increase speed of mixer to medium-high and beat 3 minutes until well combined and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Reduce mixer speed to low and beat in applesauce (don’t worry if the mixture looks curdled, it’s supposed to look that way!). Beat in flour mixture on low until smooth, scraping bowl occasionally with rubber spatula to ensure it’s fully mixed
  4. Scrap batter into prepared pan and spread evenly. Bake 40 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center of cake comes out clean. Cool completely on write rack. Just before serving, dust with confectioner’s sugar or drizzle with caramel sauce. Slice and serve!


Feel free to substitute store-bought applesauce for homemade

Cake can also be made in a bundt pan or smaller pie pans, as pictured. Reduce baking time if splitting the batter among a few smaller pans

Store cakes wrapped tightly in plastic wrap at room temperature for up to 2 days. Refrigerate or freeze for longer storage. Store cakes naked (without confectioner’s sugar or caramel sauce)
