addition. Add the dry ingredients alternately with the applesauce and the

and nuts. Pour the batter into a greased 13 X 9 X 2-inch baking pan. Bake
in a preheated 350 Degree F. oven for 45 minutes or until a cake tester or
wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool, until cold to the
touch, in the pan on a wire rack. Dust the cake with Confectioners’ sugar.
