National Applesauce Cake DayNational Applesauce Cake Day

Celebrate this moist and versatile dessert for National Applesauce Cake Day on June 6th. Applesauce cake is often made with a mix of spices like cinnamon, allspice, and nutmeg as well as nuts and dried fruit. 

While the exact origins of applesauce cake are unknown, we can trace the creation of applesauce itself back to a recipe published in Complete Housewife by Eliza Smith in 1739. The first written reference to applesauce cake that we have dates back to a letter written by Professor Mary Swartz Rose in 1917.

Rationing of sugar during both World Wars saw applesauce cake rise in popularity as some recipes were as simple as to only have two ingredients: applesauce and flour. 

Applesauce cake is also a great way to make an inclusive dessert for the vegans in your life, and in general, half a cup of applesauce can be used to replace one large egg in nearly any confectionary recipe. 

This one is so simple, there’s really no reason not to try your hand at making your own for National Applesauce Cake Day on June 6th.
