Applesauce Cake

What is hot applesauce? The kind with red hots in it?

Applesauce Cake Pan size UPDATE

hello again.....I did make this cake and it is very flavorful. Also, it is a very dense cake....almost like a now the pan size makes more sense 11X13. I did NOT use that size...instead I went with a 8X13 glass pan.....but when I make this again (which I will) I will use the larger pan. The neighbors & family members I shared this with have given me rave reviews. (and name is added an R to my name in your response). :)

applesauce cake: PAN SIZE???

your recipe calls for a 11X13 inch pan for this recipe.....that's huge? maybe a misprint?

The Editors's picture

Hi, Kendra. You will notice that this recipe is labeled as “user submitted.” Back when our site was new, we allowed our readers to upload their own recipes, so this one does not come from our archives. While 11”x13” does sound big, you’ll notice this cake does have high volume ingredient measurements like 3 cups of flour and 2 cups of applesauce. If you want to make it in a different size pan, you will need to adjust the cooking time.
