Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Applesauce was your Dad's favorite cake that Grandma Burning made. She didn't have a recipe just knew how much of each thing to add. She tried to give me the proportions but mine never turned out as good as hers. I found this recipe and it was as close as I could get but never quite as moist and good as hers.
