Weekend Kitchen: Applesauce cake


By Julia Westhoff

Oh my god. Another apple recipe? Are you kidding me? But I just couldn’t help it – this one is so good, and so different. From one of my favorite food bloggers of all time, Orangette, it involves hints of ginger, black pepper, and molasses-y brown sugar. The applesauce and the oil make it wonderfully moist. It is just a winner of a recipe all around. And this time of year when we do so much entertaining, this is a great recipe to keep in your back pocket.

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and that you’re excited to gear up for a wonderful Christmas season. Do yourself a favor: Make this cake, a pot of tea, and take a moment to savor it all. But be careful! It will vanish before you know it.
