    A rich history for a rich, moist cake.

    Applesauce Spice Cake has been a favorite since Colonial times. It has appeared in American cookbooks since 1900, but it was promoted to a patriotic dessert during World War I because everyone had homemade applesauce and it was a cake that could be served plain or made special with some extras you may have on hand.
