Wonderful with a hot cup of coffee or tea. Just a touch of spice and the lemon is a nice touch to set off the applesauce. Hope you enjoy. Top with whipped cream or lemon sauce.

Topping this cake is key. By itself, it's a bit dry, but has a nice flavor. I sprinkled the top of the cake with a little cinnamon before baking and served the cake with a tart lemon sauce.

Made for Recipe Group. I thought this was good, nice lemony flavor in the background. I made it in an 8x8 pan. I sprinkled cinnamon sugar over natural applesauce and on the top. I just mixed the batter with my hands, pressed down the bottom layer and crumbled over the applesauce. Makes a nice coffecake! Thanks for the recipe.

Recipe Group Selection: 08, March 2014 ~ I am glad I waited to write the review about this cake. The first night we tried it was the day I baked it. We found it to be a little dry, even with the 'Lemon Sauce II' from AR, that I made as a topper. (Submitter suggested a lemon sauce). By covering the leftovers with a tight fitting lid, the dessert softened up and we enjoyed it so much better. If I were to make this again, I would cut back on the crust/topping layers or add about 3/4 cup more applesauce. I did sprinkle a little cinnamon on the top before baking.
