Whole-Wheat Applesauce Cake by My Baking Heart

In the five-plus years I’ve been baking and blogging, I’ve never made a true ‘applesauce cake.’ So, to prepare for this month’s post, I pulled up a Google search on the cake and was surprised to see just how popular this cake is. There were pages and pages of posts with varying recipes for this sweet treat. But in the end, I chose a classic cake recipe with a Southern twist to recreate for you.

And surprise! It’s National Applesauce Cake Day… isn’t that just the cutest way to celebrate a June Tuesday afternoon?
