Recipe 2 of Applesauce Week :)

With a whopping 2 cups of applesauce used in this recipe, this was right up my alley for using up my big batch of homemade applesauce.

The molasses and all the spices made me think of Christmas a bit, which is always a good thing. The cake was a moist and delicious.
