A Holiday Favorite, 100 Years in the Making

It’s hard to believe this week is Thanksgiving. With everything that’s going on in our world, I’m really looking forward to this holiday season. Hope you are too. Being with our family and friends brings us comfort and reinvigorates us in these uncertain times.

I’m looking forward to making my Applesauce Cake. I make it every year. The recipe is more than 100 years old, and it was passed down to me by my mother, Margaret Larason, who got it from her mother. It’s my favorite kind of dessert — not too sweet, full of spices, nuts, and raisins. Grandmother said this cake was often sent to the troops overseas during World War I because it stayed moist for so long. Try it! I hope you will like it.

P.S. If you make Applesauce Cake, would you send me a picture? It would be so fun to see other families enjoying grandmother’s recipe this year!
