“From Taste of Home. We enjoy this nicely spiced, moist cake with the crunchy streusel and the applesauce between the layers. I substitute freshly ground whole grain flour for the all-purpose. **PLEASE NOTE**. If you substitute store-bought wheat flour for the all-purpose, you do not need to add the additional amount of flour - just use the same amount as all-purpose.”
