The story behind this cake:

My family had been given a large amount of canned applesauce, and we had no idea what to do with it. Well, my sister looked through all her recipe books and found this recipe. She gave it to me, I tweaked it a little, and it was a big hit. Over the next couple years I used up all the applesauce, and my family still asks for me to make this cake!
