“This is the recipe my friend Darlene uses for Christmas for a fruit cake, only she adds applesauce. The cake will keep indefinitely. These were cheap cakes to to serve at camps for desserts. When Darlene shared the recipe with me, there are no baking instructions on this... so I'm guessing on times and temperature.”
