Apple Sauce Cake

From: Linda McCartney´s Home Cooking, p. 152

The Apple Sauce Cake is very rich and has a lovely taste of spices. It is a perfect autumn or winter cake and makes a great desert when served warm with vanilla ice cream. Also good when served at room temperature with a cup of tea.

This cake freezes well. Defrost and warm in the microwave for a few seconds before serving.

Gluten-free: Use same amount of gluten-free flour mix (e.g. “Freee plain white flour” from Doves Farm) and add 2 teaspoons of potato fibre or 1 teaspoon of psyllium husks.

Vegan: Use margarine instead of butter and replace the egg with 1 tablespoon flaxmeal and 3 tablespoons water (to be mixed with the flour).
