Homemade Applesauce Cake

What goes great with homemade applesauce? Homemade applesauce cake.  It a great way to make a fresh, healthy-ish dessert for your family.  My 3-year-old LOVES apples and is such a fan of this cake, it is one of his favorites and mine!

To begin this recipe, you must first prepare the homemade applesauce.

Thinking about this brought to mind a really cute Mother’s Day gift from my then 4-year-old. A recipe book with interpretations of different recipes from the minds of other pre-schoolers.

The recipe is for “Cooked Apples”, the 4-year-old, whom I’ll call Lincoln says that to make the cooked apples you must…

“Get apples from the store. Then you cook them in a pot. Add something to make it sweet. Cook about an hour and then you can eat it.”

Lincoln’s recipe is actually a pretty good outline.  However, for the full recipe, click here for my Homemade Applesauce Recipe.

Once the applesauce is made, begin making the cake flour. For the full How to Make Cake Flour recipe, click here.
