The Villages Florida Area Real Estate: Secret Recipe Revealed - Lunchbox Apple Cake

Secret Recipe Revealed - Lunchbox Apple Cake

Secret Recipe Revealed - Lunchbox Apple Cake

As you can see from the title, this is a cake that you are supposed to be able to take in your lunchbox (was there ever a day when that was done?).  This is a very tasty recipe, but in my view, the only reason for cake of any kind is to support frosting.  Therefore, if you want a nice moist cake that can be eaten like a brownie, this is a great recipe.  If you want to make it really great, frost it with butterIs it Lunch Time Already? cream frosting and let me know when it is ready.  This is a really easy recipe that kids can enjoy making (with adult supervision, of course!).

Lunchbox Apple Cake

1/2 cup butter

1-3/4 cups applesauce

2 cups flour

1 cup sugar

1 tsp salt

1 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp. nutmeg

1/4 tsp. cloves

Optional:  1/2 cup each raisins and walnuts

Combine applesauce and butter in saucepan over heat until butter melts.  Remove from heat; add remaining ingredients and stir thoroughly.  Pour into greased 9 inch square pan and bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until it springs back in middle when touched.

Hi Chris, I love the squirrel in this "recipe" post as he/she appears to be telling the rest of the story. Now if I only had time to bake this morning...

Chris~sounds yummy, I've copied and will try and post a true review then :-)  Thanks for sharing!

Here's to a great 2012!

Sounds healthier (if that's a possibility with cake) since you use applesauce.  The applesauce makes it moist.  By the way, if pizza can be considered a vegetable, I think your apple cake can be considered a fruit.  So, dig in!

Thanks, Chris, for sharing your recipe.  I will re-blog it if the server will allow me to do it.

From our home to yours, best wishes for a Very Merry Christmas!

Hi Josh - Happy Holidays to you as well!

Hi Emily - This recipe is super easy.  I could even mix it up.  You just have to hang around working on your computer until it comes out of the oven!  : )

Hi Jamie - It would be great if some of the commenters would come back after trying it and review!  I will be waiting!

Hi Pamela - I think you are on to something there!  One of my kids was outraged when pizza was "declared" a vegetable, so I will have to see if I can get things going by calling this a fruit.  : )

Hi Chris,

I knew before I saw your name that this was your post. You put in recipes and great pictures. Will write out this recipe as my husband loves apples. I love the squirrel picture. I have been trying to get this squirrel for the past month but he rulls into this old pipe in an orange grove. I am going to park and wait for the squirrel until I get his picture.

Happy Holidays.

Hi Kristin, It isn't the least bit difficult to get a photo of a squirrel in Connecticut--they are as common as trees!  A very Merry Christmas to you as well!
