"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." — DOMINIAKS

sifted all-purpose flour
lemon, zest grated
1 3/4 cups
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.
This is sooooo good.
It was nice, but I got sick just as I was eating the last bite :). I put lemon sauce and whipped cream on top of it.
Lovely dessert...the shortbread crust and topping are a nice counterpoint to the applesauce (which basically becomes apple butter during the baking process). I used homemade applesauce, which has more flavor than most store brands. Do sprinkle a little cinnamon on the cake prior to baking. The cake took about 60 minutes to bake. Not sure what happened with the cake of the rater who said it was dry...mine was not. I'm very glad I made it in spite of the 'dry' comment!
I used the Lemon Sauce 1 recipe (since I had the lemon left from the cake) and it's perfect (cut back on the nutmeg and use a bit of cinnamon) as a finishing drizzle. Yum! Everyone loved it.
