Applesauce cake has been a popular dessert in the United States since the early 20th century, when applesauce became widely available and was often used as a substitute for more expensive ingredients such as butter and eggs.

Applesauce cake is typically made with unsweetened applesauce, flour, sugar, eggs, butter or oil, and a variety of spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves.

To make applesauce cake, the ingredients are typically mixed together and baked in a cake pan until golden brown and cooked through.


2 cups all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg.

1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 cup unsalted butter, 1 cup granulated sugar, 2 large eggs, 1 1/2 cups unsweetened applesauce, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract.


Preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C). Grease and flour a 9-inch (23 cm) cake pan. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.

In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the applesauce and vanilla extract.

Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and smooth the top with a spatula.

Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean. Let the cake cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy your delicious applesauce cake!
