My father grows a large squash patch, so each fall, I get an ample amount of his harvest. I make this treat to share with my co-workers. They rave about the moist cake, the crunchy streusel and the applesauce between the layers. —Mary Jones, Cumberland, Maine
"My great-grandmother created this recipe, and it has been passed down through our family," shares Cyndi Martin of Montgomery, Illinois. Cinnamon nicely spices the moist snack cake that's made with tart apples, crunchy nuts and other everyday ingredients.
This moist spice cake from Sandra Castillo of Sun Prairie, Wisconsin is low in fat but full of flavor! "Apple pie filling is my secret ingredient," she writes. "For a fun variation, try it with a chocolate cake mix and cherry pie filling...or yellow cake mix and peach filling."
A friend gave me this recipe to make for a breakfast I was hosting. The pan was empty before the breakfast was over! It's one of my most-requested recipes, probably because it's a bit different.

When you visit friends or relatives in my area of the country, you can be sure the coffee will be brewing soon and their favorite dessert will be served. This is my favorite - maybe that's why I get a lot of visitors!
