Applesauce Snack Cake

This is the best applesauce cake I've ever had, much less made! Triple Apple Action flavour and it is sooo easy to make. It is very very moist and does not dry out the next day (if it lasts that long). Variation ideas follow the main recipe and other add-ins can be folded into batter, such as nuts or raisins, although this cake is at it's best when it's at its simplest. Think Less Is More. From Cook's Illustrated September/October 2006, This recipe can easily be doubled and baked in a 13"x9" pan. If doubling the recipe, give the cider and dried apple mixture about 20 minutes to reduce and bake the cake for 45 minutes. This cake is very moist, it's best to err on the side of 'overdone' when testing its doneness. Apple juice can be substituted for apple cider, but cider is the best option. Cooled leftovers can be wrapped in plastic wrap and stored at room temperature for up to two days. Freezes very well.Makes one 8" square cake
