MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 18, 2011

I was looking through old recipes from my grandmother and I noticed an applesauce cake that was my great granmothers and I wondered if there was a lighter version of the cake. I was very happy to find this recipe. It was easy to make. I added a little less sugar, used light cream cheese, and used light butter instead of oil. I also used a bundt ban instead. If you used a bundt expect that it wont rise the whole way up but I didn't care. You also have to cook it for 35 mins with the bundt. Super Yummy!! and not too bad for you.
