Olivia Walton's Applesauce Cake with Whiskey Frosting

This cake is the one Olivia Walton made in the movie "The Homecoming", which was the basis for the TV series "The Walton's" and mentioned in several of the television episodes as John-Boys favorite cake. 
 
Today I'm sharing a recipe for a delicious cake! Not just any cake, but Olivia Walton's Applesauce Cake! If you're a fan of the TV series, The Walton's I'm pretty sure you've heard about Olivia's famous Applesauce Cake. 

Whenever there is something to celebrate in the Walton house, Olivia would always make her special Applesauce Cake. This delicious cake is also featured in an Earl Hamner's Novel. "The Homecoming: A Christmas Story" airing in 1971 upon which the series pilot was based.

Hello Spring! The Free Mrs. Meyers Spring Cleaning Kit

Some of the links in this post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for supporting the brands that helps support Mommy's Kitchen. 

Spring is in the air! Well, at least it is here in North Texas. We've had such an unseasonable warm winter that I can't help but to jump into spring mode. It really is one of my favorite times of year, the warmer weather, chirping birds, blooming flowers, piddling in the garden, and spring cleaning. And yes, I said cleaning. 

I'm a bit different than others as I love to clean, especially during spring. For me, beautiful cleaning products in a fresh scent make cleaning feel like less of a chore. There's no better feeling than having a nice fresh home after a thorough cleaning. To achieve that feeling I use my favorite Mrs. Meyers  Natural Cleaning Products to help me along the way.
