Applesauce Cake is pretty much a must at my house. I make it every Fall without fail and the kids LOVE it!

What are your favorite fall fruits? If they can be put in a crumble or a pie, you can adapt them to a cake. Create familiar and new cake recipes for hot fall desserts, just by adding some fruits or fruit sauces!
