  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
     1/2  cup           applesauce
     1/2  cup           sugar -- white
     1/2  cup           brown sugar
   1                    egg white
   2      cups          flour
     1/2  teaspoon      salt
   1      teaspoon      baking soda
   1      teaspoon      vanilla
   1      cup           milk -- fatfree sour or buttermilk
   1 1/2  cups          rhubarb -- raw, chopped
     1/2  cup           sugar -- white
   1      teaspoon      cinnamon

Cream together applesauce, sugars, and egg. Add flour, salt, vanilla, soda,
milk, rhubarb. Pour into 9x13" pan. Top with mixture of sugar and cinnamon.
bake at 325 for 50 minutes.

NOTES:  Original recipe called for 1/2 cup shortening (I substituted
applesauce), and a whole egg instead of just egg white. Original also called
for  1/2 cup of chopped nuts to be mixed with sugar and cinnamon for topping. 

On occasion I have also substituted blueberries or apples for the rhubarb but
rhubarb is best.

I make sour milk with a couple of tablespoons of white vinegar plus milk to
equal one cup. Let stand while mixing rest of ingredients.

This is a very moist cake and has long been a family favorite.
