TTW: Applesauce Coffee Cake

Fall is just around the corner and will bring the harvest fruits with it.  Some people will have the opportunity to pick a bunch right off the tree and then end up with tons of apples they aren’t sure what do with.  Applesauce is the staple for these situations, but then you are back to the issue of an abundance of the fruit only in a different form.

Here is a quick bread to use some of that plenty.  The sweetness comes through the crumbly cake and matched well with it’s old buddy cinnamon.   It’s a pretty simple and straight forward recipe making it easy for anyone to do on a crisp fall morning.  Not to mention your house will smell fantastic!

c. sugar


c. butter


c. chopped nuts
