I have finally managed to do something that has always bothered me to anger that I couldn’t accomplish.
I have finally made a layered cake that didn’t fall to pieces. Sure it’s lumpy and my frosting skills are sub par (and I ran out of frosting) but I have finally -made- a successful layered cake.
All of this wedding stuff means that there’s stuff in this apartment that I almost never have, one of them being white cake mix. I also have a zoo of half or less filled canning jars in the fridge from the ends of batches of the stress canning I’ve been doing. I combined two of these things, a cake mix and applesauce, to clear out jars and use up mixes that would just sit there otherwise.
Simple Applesauce Layered Cake
1 white cake mix
2 round cake pans
1 1/2 cups water
about a pint’s worth of applesauce
Optional: pumpkin or cake spice
Preheat oven to 350.
Mix cake mix, fruit, water and eggs.
Pour into pans, and bake for 34-36 minutes.
Let cool, remove from pans and frost with frosting of choice.
