A slice of applesauce cake with a cinnamon and sugar topping

Applesauce cake is a dessert cake prepared using apple sauce, flour and sugar as primary ingredients. Various spices are typically used, and it tends to be a moist cake. Several additional ingredients may also be used in its preparation, and it is sometimes prepared and served as a coffee cake. The cake dates back to early colonial times in the United States. National Applesauce Cake Day occurs annually on June 6 in the U.S.

The preparation of applesauce cake dates back to early colonial times in the New England Colonies of the northeastern United States. From 1900 to the 1950s, recipes for applesauce cake frequently appeared in American cookbooks. In the United States, National Applesauce Cake Day occurs annually on June 6.

Applesauce cake is a dessert cake prepared using apple sauce, flour and sugar as main ingredients. Store-bought or homemade applesauce may be used in its preparation. Additional ingredients include eggs, butter, margarine or oil, raisins, dates, chopped apple, chopped nuts (such as walnuts and pecans), cocoa powder, and spices such as cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and allspice. Some versions include dried or fresh, finely grated ginger. After baking, applesauce cake is sometimes topped with an icing, frosting or glaze, such as a caramel glaze. It also may be served topped with a dusting of confectioner’s sugar or whipped cream. Gluten-free applesauce cake can be prepared using rice flour.

Applesauce cupcakes

Applesauce cake tends to be moist due to the liquid content present in the apple sauce. However, using a chunky-style apple sauce can result in a cake with less moisture than from using standard apple-sauce. Letting it sit for one or two days before serving can increase its flavor, as this allows time for the ingredients to intermingle within the cake.

It can be prepared using various types of cake pans, such as a ring-shaped bundt cake using a bundt pan, in loaf form using a loaf pan, or as a sheet cake with a sheet cake pan. Applesauce cake is sometimes prepared in the form of cupcakes.

Applesauce cake may be prepared and served as a type of coffee cake, which may include a sweet crumb topping. Simple versions may be prepared using prepared coffee cake mix, apple sauce, and other various ingredients. Fruits such as blueberries, cranberries and raisins may also be used in applesauce coffee cake.

Gradually add to cream cheese mixture, beating until well blended. Divide dough in half; shape each half into rectangle. Wrap dough in plastic wrap; refrigerate at least 30 minutes.

3- Dust clean work surface with powdered sugar; roll out 1 dough piece into 15-inch square. Trim and cut into 3-inch squares. Slice squares from each corner. Fold half of each corner towards center. Place on prepared cookie sheets. Repeat with remaining dough.

Leftover Chicken and Dumplings

Today’s Menu: Leftover Chicken and Dumplings and Cornbread

 

For Breakfast on I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 55 degrees and mostly cloudy out today. Got the cart and yard tools out of the shed and raked the yard and cleaned up around the yard and deck. Helped Mom put away our indoor Christmas Decorations. Back to normal! For Dinner tonight Leftover Chicken and Dumplings and Sides. I just couldn’t let these Leftovers go to waste! I’ve left the original post from yesterday below for directions and descriptions. Take Care All!

 

My Mom is made her Chicken and Dumplings for Dinner yesterday! She used Bisquick Heart Smart Mix for the Dumplings and Tyson Split Chicken Breasts for the Chicken. She first made the Dumplings using a recipe found on Bisquick Boxes. Made those and set them aside until ready to use. My Grandmother and Mom both have used this same recipe since it came out on the Bisquick boxes. Not the best Dinner for calories and carbs but having it a couple times a year isn’t too bad!

 

For the Chicken. She boiled the Chicken Breasts in a pot until they were done adding more water to them twice. After the Chicken was cooked she removed them from the pot and roughly shredded it. Returned it to the pot of Broth or Stew and added the Dumplings, reducing the heat. Cooked the two together uncovered for 10 minutes and then another 12 minutes covered until they were done.

 

As I said these Dumplings just melt in your mouth! Just incredible flavor with the Chicken being moist and adding it’s flavor. Plus that incredible and thick broth that’s created while its all cooking is the thing that ties it all together! I can’t have these often, having Diabetes 2, but once in a while is just fine! It’s hard to resist these pillowy Dumplings of goodness!

 

 

We also opened up a quart jar of the Canned Green Beans. I love these Green Beans! And also sas the Chicken and Dumplings were cooking I made Mom Cornbread, Mom loves Cornbread! I made a small Cast iron Skillet of Cornbread. As always I used Martha White Corn Meal Mix, something I think I could eat every meal. I like a nice fresh and hot slice with Butter on it. When I make this I just make it by the instructions on the package but I only use half the ingredients because I use a small cast iron skillet to make it. I use Egg Beaters and Extra Virgin Oil instead of Eggs and Vegetable Oil the recipe calls for. Bake at 450 degrees for about 25 minutes and you have some golden brown piping hot Cornbread! If you use a small cast iron skillet just cut the recipe in half and it comes out just right for the skillet size. What a dinner tonight! For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello Cup.

Today’s Menu: Christmas Dinner – Chicken and Dumplings and Cornbread

 

First off, a Merry Christmas to Everyone! For Breakfast on this Christmas Morning I prepared a Potatoes and Ham Breakfast Skillet. I used 1 package of Simply Potatoes Steakhouse Seasoned Diced Potatoes and a package of Meijer Diced Ham. Just cooked the Potatoes according to the package instructions and with about 5 minutes of cooking time left add the Diced Ham. I topped it with Sargento Off the Block Shredded Cheddar Cheese. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. A very Delicious way to kick-off Christmas! No White Christmas around here. It’s 66 degrees and rain. So not a thing going on today except cooking and relaxing. I gave Mom a hand in the Kitchen preparing Christmas Dinner. So for Dinner tonight my Mom is making her melt-in-your mouth Chicken and Dumplings and some Cast Iron Skillet Cornbread.

 

My Mom is making her Chicken and Dumplings for Christmas Dinner! She used Bisquick Heart Smart Mix for the Dumplings and Tyson Split Chicken Breasts for the Chicken. She first made the Dumplings using a recipe found on Bisquick Boxes. Made those and set them aside until ready to use. My Grandmother and Mom both have used this same recipe since it came out on the Bisquick boxes. Not the best Dinner for calories and carbs but having 1 time every 4 months or so doesn’t hurt.

 

For the Chicken. She boiled the Chicken Breasts in a pot until they were done adding more water to them twice. After the Chicken was cooked she removed them from the pot and roughly shredded it. Returned it to the pot of Broth or Stew and added the Dumplings, reducing the heat. Cooked the two together uncovered for 10 minutes and then another 12 minutes covered until they were done.

 

 

As I said these Dumplings just melt in your mouth! Just incredible flavor with the Chicken being moist and adding it’s flavor. Plus that incredible and thick broth that’s created while its all cooking is the thing that ties it all together! I can’t have these often, having Diabetes 2, but once in a while is just fine! It’s hard to resist these pillowy Dumplings of goodness!

 

We also opened up a quart jar of the Canned Green Beans. I love these Green Beans! Also made some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes and also as the Chicken and Dumplings were cooking I made Mom Cornbread, Mom loves Cornbread! I made a small Cast iron Skillet of Cornbread. As always I used Martha White Corn Meal Mix, something I think I could eat every meal. I like a nice fresh and hot slice with Butter on it. When I make this I just make it by the instructions on the package but I only use half the ingredients because I use a small cast iron skillet to make it. I use Egg Beaters and Extra Virgin Oil instead of Eggs and Vegetable Oil the recipe calls for. Bake at 450 degrees for about 25 minutes and you have some golden brown piping hot Cornbread! If you use a small cast iron skillet just cut the recipe in half and it comes out just right for the skillet size. What a dinner tonight! For Dessert later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink. Merry Christmas Everyone!
