Does anyone have this cookbook? I sold mine a few years ago at my garage sale and have now realized that I let go a favorite recipe called Applesauce Snack Cake. I used to make it for my kids when I canned applesauce every year. Well, this year there was a bumper crop of apples in our area and I canned 46 quarts for us, our grown children and grandchildren. Now I want to make this cake, but don't have the recipe. If anyone has a copy of this cookbook would you let me know? Thank you so much!

The cookbook had a yellow cover and my particular revision was in a loose leaf format. Fingers crossed that someone has it! And a word to the wise; don't have a yard sale when you have a back injury and are taking pain meds. You might get rid of something you live to regret getting rid of!

Thanks, MB. I'm hoping someone has it and can share just that one recipe. I didn't use many of the other recipes unfortunately and hate to purchase it again. I sure will if I have to and there are some good prices for it here.Thanks!

That's a cute one! The one I'm looking for is made with raisins (if I remember correctly), applesauce, butter, cinnamon, whole wheat flour, brown sugar, and a streusel topping.

AYou are most welcome. I have had that cookbook for thirty years. It was a wedding present from my mother in law.
