Made with a combination of spices, applesauce and molasses, it’s both sweet and spicy, as well as warming and comforting. And the best part? It’s easy to make and requires just one bowl. The recipe uses no refined sugar, so it’s a slightly healthier treat option for those watching their sugar intake.
Serve it warm with an optional sprinkle of confectioners’ sugar, or a drizzle of lemon glaze — or, as shown here, a delightful dollop of whipped cream and a pinch of cinnamon.
Snitch ‘N Snack Cake: One-bowl applesauce cake recipe (1973)
It’s one-bowl easy. It’s snitchin’ good. And it’s especially versatile. It’s the perfect snack almost any time. Bake it as squares, a ring, a loaf or cupcakes. Glaze it or not.
Serve it as a dessert, alone, or a la mode. Offer it for special flavor at brunch, lunch, or nightcap breaks.
The good flavor comes from the blend of tart and sweet apples in Mott’s Applesauce and from Grandma’s old-fashioned molasses.
Making Grandma’s Snitch ‘N Snack Cake is simple. Hiding it from snitchers may be a problem.
