I'm finally posting a recipe. This is our family's favorite cake -- we found the recipe on a box of raisins, I think, in the 1950's. It used to call for 1/2 cup of oil, but by increasing the applesauce it no longer needs it. Also, I'm posting the measurement of white flour the original recipe included. I have experimented with different ratios of whole wheat to white flour -- depending on your tastes, you can do the same. Another variation I might try in the future is to use a little molasses and cut down on the sugar. It's very versatile, easy, and fool-proof. Can add anywhere from one to three tablespoons of unsweetned chocolate power for variation.
