Applesauce Cake-Ruth Fremes-What's Cooking

Ruth Fremes had a great show on CTV called What's Cooking. Her obituary was in the Globe and Mail over the weekend and her contribution to Canadian cooking tremendous. I learnt a lot about technique from her show.
I once had a recipe for an applesauce coffee cake which I have lost would anyone have this recipe?

    I am Ruth's daughter. Thank you for the compliments. As I go through things over the next few months, I will keep an eye out for the recipe. If I find it, I will post it here if you would like (unless there is another way to contact you). Sincerely, Ruth's daughter- Susan

        Susan I too am very sorry for the loss of your mother, very sad news.

        How very kind of you to help here. I am not familiar with your mom but if you wouldn't mind too much I'd love to make your moms applesauce cake for the first time in honor of a great cook, woman, author and mom. Thank you
