If you are baking with this recipe, place a paper towel in a strainer, scoop in the applesauce and place over a bowl for an hour. This will remove as much water as possible. Or cook the applesauce longer to get a thicker type filling.


  • 6 medium apples (1 medium apple = 1/2 cup applesauce)
  • 1 cup water or apple cider
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter


Step 1

Peel, core and cut up the apples (if you want the applesauce to be pink, leave on the red peels). Place them in a saucepan with cider or water, sugar and cinnamon.

Step 2

Boil gently uncovered, until the apples are soft enough to mash, about 40 minutes. Stir with a fork to mash, leaving a few small lumps.

Step 3

Return to low heat. Stir in butter. Simmer until melted. Beat briefly.

Step 4

Serve up or add cornstarch to thicken and use to make filling for a cake (especially Old Fashioned Stack Cake).
