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?
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
I have 2 of her books and one includes this recipe:
