This could not be any easier. The prep work is minimal, but the outcome is superb. With a slight variation in topping, this simple recipe can double as both a dessert and a breakfast cake.
1 cup applesauce
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup brown sugar
2 cups all purpose flour (I use half white, half wheat)
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground cloves
In a large bowl, mix together the applesauce, butter, and sugar.
Whisk in the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and cloves.
Pour into a greased 8x8 baking dish.
Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes.
Allow to cool for 5-10 minutes. For dessert, serve with a little whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon, or a scoop of ice cream.
For breakfast, serve with fried apples, yogurt, or coffee. Yummy!
