Applesauce Cake and Icing


I love apples. In any way they come… pies, cakes, cider, juice, dried, with a dip, and especially just plain. I love biting into a fresh apple and tasting the sweet, sometimes tart, juice.

Now that I have your mouth watering for some apple dish, I can present you with my recipe! (Mwahaha).

But in all seriousness (because we all know that this website is nothin’ but serious and professional-like) this cake is divine. My mother declares it to be her favorite, so there ya go. 😉 Let’s just dive right into to it, shall we?


Applesauce Cake

This Is What You Will Need:

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 1 2/3 cups raw sugar
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 3 cups applesauce
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 2/3 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla

Mix all of the ingredients in a mixing bowl. Pour the thick batter into greased 10″x10″ pans. Bake at 350° for about 40 minutes then check cake with a toothpick. You should bake it longer if the toothpick comes out with batter on it. Let it cool and then put the icing on it.


Cream Cheese Frosting

This Is What You Will Need:

  • 1 cup cream cheese
  • 2 Tbs. butter
  • 1 tsp.vanilla
  • Honey to sweeten

Mix all of the ingredients together well. This frosting is more spreadable than stiff.

If you use this Cream Cheese Frosting recipe for something else, then 4 drops of orange essential oil or 2 Tbs. of orange juice is added to the recipe.


I hope everyone has a blessed night! 😀
