Applesauce Cake with Oatmeal Streusel

Hubby wanted a coffee cake for his birthday cake – here’s what I came up with, it’s so moist.

Streusel:

  • 1 c firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1 c rolled oats
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 6 tbsp butter

Cake:

  • 2 1/2 c flour
  • 1 c sugar
  • 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cardamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground clove
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 c u sweetened applesauce
  • 2 eggs, lightly beatne
  • 1/2 c butter, melted
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 c vegetable or nut oi

Preheat oven to 350. Geese a 12 c Bundt pan.

In a mixer combine the streusel ingredients, best until crumbly. Scrape into a bowl and set aside.

Place dry ingredients in the mixing bowl, mix to combine. Add eggs and applesauce, stir to combine, add remaining ingredients and mix till smooth.

Scrape 1/3 of the batter into the pan, too with 1/2 the batter, spread the remaining batter, and finished with the remains batter.

Bake for 1 hour to 1 hour and 15 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean and the cake is browned.

Let cool in pan for 10 minutes then flip out onto a plate.

Serves 10 – 12.
