Applesauce Cake

Let me start off by saying I hate applesauce.  I pretty much hate anything with that consistency.  Regardless, I received a free bottle of the stuff from the local supermarket and just had it sitting in my fridge.  Today while I was already making dinner (another recipe to come!) I decided to put this applesauce to use.  Sometimes you just need a good dessert to follow a great dinner.

  • Ingredients:
  • 1 stick butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup chilled applesauce
  • 2 cups AP flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and grease and flour an 8-inch square pan.  Pam makes a great baking spray that already has the flour combined for you.
  2. Using a stand mixer fixed with the paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugar.
  3. Add applesauce and beat well.  Make sure to scrape down the sides as you go along.
  4. Remove the bowl from the mixer and stir in flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and nutmeg.  Add walnuts.
  5. Pour the batter into your prepared pan and bake for 40 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  6. Serve warm.
