Sugarless Applesauce Cake

Lisa over at  is having a Fall Fruits Festival.  Everyday this week is recipes with a different fruit, other than Friday.  She has declared that to be chocolate day.  Well today is apples.  So I decided to share a apple recipe that is probably a little different.  I made it for my ex-mother-in-law for her birthday every year because she was a diabetic.  It's a very simple recipe.

Also Diana over at  is looking for Fall recipes for a wonderful cookbook giveaway.  So please go check both of these ladies, they are both wonderful bloggers.
