Hi, just made this cake for a group event. Upped the applesauce to 1 cup, used half light brown and white sugars, added cinnamon, baked in a Bundt pan for 50 minutes at 350 degrees. Rave reviews, none left, perfect w/coffee, tea or milk. Enjoy!
Very easy & very tasty
Made this as is on Easter, 2008 to go with Dark Chocolate Ice Cream (#27086)--needed something to somewhat tone down the richness of the ice cream. What a great combination!! Everybody took a copy of this recipe home. I didn't use the glaze as we were serving ice cream--glaze would add that little of sweetness. Thanks.
I gave this 4 stars. My family loved this coffee cake we had it for part of my family's Sunday big breakfast. I even messed up slightly by using 1 cup of applesauce and it still turned out so good. We will have this again. Thanks for posting a yummy recipe. Christine (internetnut)
This is one of my DH favorite coffee cakes. He has a few of them!! He just loves coffee cakes. I add 1/2 to 1 tsp of ground cinnamon to the batter to give it more of a cinnamon taste (we love cinnamon)!! This is a very easy and wonderful cake. Thanks for posting this recipe!1
This simple recipe is one of the best coffee cake recipes you can find.
Very good cake, & really easy to put together. I did make a couple of adjustments (due to DH's dietary restrictions & personal preference): substituted 1/2 c unsweetened applesauce for 1/2 c of the butter, and replaced the sugar with granulated Splenda. I didn't use the nuts, as DH can't have them right now - but I will try the recipe again with nuts when he can. I also made a glaze with Splenda using 1-1/2 cups with about a tablespoon of skim milk, added a little vanilla and a sprinkle of cinnamon. The cake is really good as an afternoon snack with a hot cup of tea. Thanks for posting! -M =)
Yummy! Quick moist cake makes an easy dessert or after school snack. Lots of cinnamon flavor, great for Fall. We all loved it! Thanks, yooper!
This was very easy to make and very tasty. I liked the fact that is was not to crumbly (easy for kids to eat). I also increased the applesauce by 1/4 C and added the above recommended 1 C of butter.
We weren't happy with this cake. It lacked flavor. I made it according to the directions using the pecans. I toasted them first. I think some ginger or nutmeg or even cardamom would perk this up a bit. Even with the cinnamon chips I think it needed something else.
