  • Cake:
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. nutmeg
  • 2 cups applesauce
  • 1/2 cup apples, diced
  • 2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream or milk


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl and with an electric mixer, cream together the brown sugar and butter until smooth and fluffy. Add the eggs, vanilla, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg to the butter/sugar and whip until smooth. Dice the apples into small pieces. Add the applesauce and diced apples to the batter. Add the flour slowly until the batter is combined.
  • Spray a 9x13 pan with nonstick cooking spray. Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean from the center.
  • For the sauce, add the butter, sugar and whipping cream into a saucepan and heat to medium high heat. Simmer the sauce until the sugar dissolves and the sauce is creamy. Drizzle this glaze over the warm cake from the oven.
