"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."

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.
Made this for Recipe Group...Delicious! I didn't have a 9x9 square baking pan, so I used a 9" round pan and that worked well, except I had some 'dough' left over, but that was fine. This baked up beautifully, and was very tasty...sort of reminded me of a cross between a cobbler and a pie. Topped with a sprinkle of cinnamon before baking, as Pam noted in her review, and served with whipped cream and a drizzle of caramel. This was a big hit for dessert tonight...a keeper, for sure~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)
Easy recipe , I made my own apple sauce and used mixed spice .
I made this dessert in the winter when I wanted a fruit dessert but the fresh fruit selection was scarce. I made one following the recipe and then I made another one with cherry pie filling. For the cherry one I omitted the lemon zest, cloves and cinnamon. Both were very good! Not too sweet!
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.
