"Applesauce is my go-to thing to make before apples on my counter go bad. First, it's a fantastic snack, it freezes very well, and it can be used as an egg substitute in some vegan recipes, a replacement for butter or oil as well, and as a sweetener in others. This cake turns out moist and loaded with flavor - seriously, it's all in the spices! The walnuts and cranberries are optional, but they make all the difference."
