Blueberry Applesauce Cake Bars

I call these "cake bars" rather than cake because they're not quite as high and fluffy as a traditional cake. But they are moist and flavorful and sturdy enough to wrap up for a treat on the road.

  • 1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 1/2 cups unsweetened apple sauce
  • 1/2 - 3/4 cups blueberries fresh or frozen (measured frozen and then thawed)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • confectioners sugar optional


  • Preheat the oven to 325F. Oil or line with parchment paper a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  • In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients, mixing well. Make a well in the middle and add the applesauce, blueberries, lemon juice, and vanilla. Stir gently, just until the flour is no longer dry. 
  • Smooth the batter into the pan and bake until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean, about 40 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool before slicing into 12 pieces and eating. Sprinkle with confectioner's sugar if desired.
