The recipe turned out great. So here it is.
Mom's Apple Cake(modified)
Beat(whisk or spoon)--2 cups sugar
3 egg whites(organic) 1/4 cup canola oil
1 1/4 cups unsweetened applesauce
Add--3 cups flour
1tsp. soda 1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon Mix well
Add-- 2tsp. vanilla
3 cups diced, peeled apples
Stir well. It will be stiff. Keep stirring until moist and batter holds together.
Bake-- 1 hour at 350 in 9X13 pan sprayed with cooking spray.
Topping--2 cups powdered sugar and 4 tblsp water
Pour over cake while the cake is still hot.
It is still delicious, although the texture changed a bit. It is more cake like instead of, I guess heavy like and it's not dripping with oil like the original. I hope everyone enjoys it.
