Surprisingly moist and delicious use of that bag of apples you have laying around every Fall! I haven't tried using all applesauce instead of the oil, but that could work though bake time/temp may need adjusting.

This cake begs to have fat free caramel drizzled over top, or whipped cream, or anything really. The original recipes calls for a cooked butter/sugar/cream mixtured spooned over top, but it's frighteningly calorie-laden.

I make this up and freeze it. Very good on a cold day or just feeling blah.
This is a recipe that's much better the next day.

This is made entirely from fresh veggies out of my garden or fresh from the local farmer. I do not use canned ingredients. They contain salt. Which I don't cook with either. My only concern with the recipe is finding the values for a soup bone.
