Olivia’s Applesauce Cake



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.  

I watch The Homecoming every Christmas and I still watch all the Walton’s episodes on INSP. Olivia despised “The Recipe” (bootleg whiskey) from the Baldwin sisters, but she made an exception and used a bit of “The Recipe” in the frosting for her applesauce and raspberry cake.  
In the episode from season three “The First Day” which was about John-Boys first day at Boatwright University Olivia makes John-Boy, his favorite cake which was her famous Applesauce Cake to celebrate his first day of college. At the end of this episode John-Boy is enjoying a slice of this delicious applesauce layer cake after experiencing a horrible day of mishaps at the University.
