My Mom's Apple Sauce Cake
Yummy! Very moist and flavorful. I did make some additions to suit my taste. I used butter flavored Crisco. The rest of the tweeks were: 1.5 tsp Cinnamon; 1/8 tsp Nutmeg; 1 tsp Ground Ginger; 1 tsp Vanilla Extract. I added 1 cup of diced fresh tart apples that are sprinkled with a bit of sugar & tossed with flour to coat before beating into the batter mixture. I added 1 cup of dried cranberries that were presoaked in warm water for 20 minutes, drained (reserving the soaking water to use as the water in the ingredients list but increasing the water up to 3/4 cup) and then toss in a sprinkle of flour before folding into batter. Added 1/4 cup of Olive Oil, and 3/4 cups chopped walnuts. Divided between 2 greased & floured 8" loaf pans. Sprinkled tops with Pure Granola cereal (granola without dried fruit or cereal bran flakes & grains). Pat granola lightly down into batter to help it to stick, and baked at 350 for 1 Hour 10 Minutes. Delish!!

Fluffy Peanut Butter Frosting
Delicious!! I will sometimes add a TBS or 2 of Hazelnut Creamer to it to add a little more richness and sweeter nutty taste. It is so yummy! This frosting has made my cupcakes a number one hit in our area!!
