"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."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

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.
I thought this was just OK. Cooked for five minutes longer than suggested and the "dough" was still a bit underdone. that being said this is not at all a cake consistency. It really is a dough rather than a batter. The taste was alright but not very flavorful. The lemon sauce is a must.
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.
This is sooooo good.
This cake needs to be made a day in advance. After it came out of the oven and cooled, it was bland and not very good. I wrapped it up and figured it would probably be thrown away, but the next day I tasted another piece, and it was totally different from the day before. The flavors came together beautifully, and it was truly delicious.
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. :)
Wow, this is really good! I used unsweetened applesauce and it still came out tasting sweet. It was not dry at all. I rarely have lemons on hand so I used about 2-3 Tbs lemon juice. The taste isn't as strong as some reviewers say they can taste the lemon zest, but it does add a bit of liquid that helps to keep the dough together. The dough resembles shortening/flour "crumbles". Just grab half of it and mold into a ball, then press into the glass dish. Cover with applesauce mixture, then grab remaining "crumbles" and sprinkle over the applesauce. It should cover the whole pan. Press down lightly, add some cinnamon for flavor and color, bake for 40-45 mins and it turns out incredible. Can't wait to add ice cream!
