My favorite “other” mother, the late Barbara Brosnan from ME made yummy homemade apple sauce and lots of other treats from an abundance of “drops” from the nearby farm. Drops? The apples the pickers dropped on the ground or the wind blew from the trees. They couldn’t be sold at premium prices so a bushel went cheap and Mom B had a whole bushel of kids, not even counting me. Lol I’m not she, so I used store bought chunky applesauce for my cake but if you make chunky homemade sauce, oh do use it! Great for breakfast, with ice cream, or anytime.
Here’s what you need:
2 tablespoons (packed) brown sugar, 1 tablespoon Bisquick – mix together and set aside (topping)
1/3 cup milk
½ cup chunky applesauce
2 cups Bisquick
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
Beat milk, egg, and applesauce slightly in mixing bowl, blend in 2 cups Bisquick and 2 tablespoons gran sugar, mixing until moist.
Pour into greased 8 x 12 baking pan and sprinkle with reserved topping.
Bake at 400 degrees for approx 22 minutes, until top is golden and tooth pick inserted in center comes out clean. Yummy served warm with ice cream!
Note: This is a light and not overly sweet cake which is just my “thing” but you can drizzle a simple confectioners sugar glaze over the top if you like super sweet treats or served after dinner with ice cream, warmed apple sauce, and a dollop of whipped cream . . .
