During my end-of-week pantry clean out I was determined to use up some open packages of dry goods. I found some sultana raisins languishing in the back and a half-full jar of applesauce in the fridge. My solution? Make a super easy, quick and yummy apple cake.
The misleading thing about the title of this recipe is that there are no fresh apples in the actual cake. It uses applesauce and dried apples. I did not have dried apples so I opted to use my raisins. I have made this cake before and it is the perfect definition of a 'snacking cake'. It has a moist, dense crumb and goes well with any type of hot beverage you like. The pecan streusel on top lends a nice crunch to the cake and the house smells great while it is baking - like you've made a pie only with less work involved. If you're looking to make an unpretentious, down-home cake, try it out.
