Applesauce… cake? Yes!
IT’S NATIONAL APPLESAUCE CAKE DAY!
When you get into cooking at home, and you’ve started to get a hang of it, the first real way to branch out is to look at what to substitute. If you’ve watched Chopped, you’ll know what we’re talking about. In baking, you have a hell of a lot of options. One of the more common, but still intriguing, ones is using applesauce. It creates a lot of moisture and cooks well, so you can use significantly less butter and oil and eggs. Here’s our recipe for Applesauce Cake:
It turned out pretty well! As SPiel said, the smell was even better than the taste. It has a comforting apple-cinnamon scent and flavor. The inside is really fluffy because the moisture from the applesauce kept the cake from falling flat and dense in the process of baking. It’s very simple, very light, and very tasty!
Tomorrow is National Chocolate Ice Cream Day! (Yesssssssss!)
