Virginia bakery applesauce cake recipe?

We are in mourning over the closing of the Virginia Bakery still....and are desperately trying to learn to recreate their 'applesauce cake'.

Does anyone have the recipe by chance?  Or any ideas if there might be something similar?

Thank you!

No recipe to offer, I’m afraid, but a similar plea: I’m not sure I can go the rest of my life never again having their giant oatmeal cookies or their amazing butter cookies. If anyone knows the owners, I’d pay a small fortune for a Virginia Bakery cookbook, as would most of my Berkeley-native friends!

I use the recipe "Applesauce Snack Cake" from the original Betty Crocker cookbook. I've never made the sauce recipe that accompanies it. It is easy, moist, and always receives praise. I hope this helps!

Good Luck!
