My cousin, Debbie Caldwell , made this recently. Here's what she had to say: "Finally got around to making this awesome Applesauce Cake Donna Lynn John shared from 30seconds.com. I halved the recipe (only 2 of us). Then substituted the caramel icing for sweetened condensed milk cooked in the slow cooker to make a yummy glaze. Thanks Donna!"
