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.
