Grain-Free Apple Cake - Fresh Planet Flavor

I spent a few days in the Texas hill country this past week, visiting family and generally being reminded that yes, it is winter. In the Bay Area (especially with the drought in full swing) it’s easy to forget!

While I stayed at my parents’ house I rooted around in their cupboard for ingredients that needed using for inspiration on my next recipe. I almost tried a turnip cake—because there were so many turnips in the refrigerator, and maybe it would work like sweet potato?—until I was reminded that they can get terribly bitter once cold. No bitter cakes wanted here!

So I opted to tackle the huge container of applesauce stashed in the pantry, and while this recipe didn’t use all of it, I made a dent at least.
