Apple Sauce Cakes are one of my favorite vintage recipes! Though, I still need to research why so many vintage recipes seem to want to include raisins – when I feel that they could have been left out, or not even thought of to begin with. Am I alone in that thought? Maybe raisins just aren’t one of my favorite food items, or ingredients.

I hope you give this Apple Sauce Cake recipe a try and let me know what you think!
