This is my husband's newest favorite cake (though quite honestly he has many favorites from the food.com site....) It is very easy to throw together quickly. The crumb topping is delicious and the cake is moist and keeps well at room temperature - if it lasts that long in your home. A great way to use up applesauce.<br/><br/>Will be making this often over the winter.
This is a great recipe! It mixes up easily and quickly. It bakes up beautifully. And most important of all, tastes great. I love that it has all the flavor of a regular cake with so much less fat.
Barry, made this for Christmas for my out-of-state sister so had to wait until I spoke to her after the holidays. On her say so, I gave it 5 stars. Will now have to fix this again, for us!
