Apple Cake Snack Cake

Last year I made a Fall Cake made with applesauce and butterscotch chips.  It was an over the top sweet treat. This year, I got out the recipe, thinking to make it again, but at the last minute took a pen and changed it completely into an Apple Snack Cake.

This year, we had the opportunity to go pick apples on a golf course nearby.  We came home with two bushels of apples from trees that had pretty much been left to grow on their own.  I ended up canning 21 quarts of applesauce and we have been enjoying pies, cakes, bars, cookies, etc made with the remaining apples.
