  1. The recipe calls for applesauce but not apples. What are the two greenish items in the slice of cake? I have never known of applesauce with pieces that large and the recipe doesn’t ask for chunky applesauce. ?? Thank you.

  2. Karen grandjean says:

    Can I replace buttermilk with almond milk

    • The Southern Lady says:

      Sorry, Karen, I cannot advise you since I have not tried it but I would think almond milk would work.

    • Buttermilk is part of the rising along with the baking soda. If you don’t have buttermilk, you can use two Tablespoons of lemon juice or white vinegar with each cup of milk. Try it with the almond milk to see if it curdles after setting a few minutes.

  3. Is it baking soda or regular soda? What kind of regular soda?

  4. This sounds like the applesauce cake my Grandmother used to make. She used pecans in it, but I never managed to get the recipe from her. Thanks for the great recipe!

  5. Mom, That looks GREAT!!!!Love you!Leigh
