They say this recipe is moist from the "applesauce," but methinks it's the cup of sour cream. Nevertheless, it is very delicious.
This cake is dee-licious! We have a nut allergy in the house, so I substituted large flake oats for the walnuts in the streusel topping. I also used 2% plain greek yogurt instead of sour cream and it still worked well. The cake is moist and flavorful and the topping adds a nice crunchy and sweet element. Definitely will make it again.
Since I have not made this cake, but would like to make it, I hesitated to rate the recipe. I have a question regarding the applesauce called for in this recipe. Am I to use sweetened, or unsweetened applesauce? Usually, when a recipe calls for unsweetened applesauce, the ingredient list specifies unsweetened. Do I assume that I am to use sweetened applesauce?
Did not take as long as I feared and was worth the effort. My grandchildren ate it with gusto, as well as the parents/grandparents.
Can't have nuts so I substitute raisins in the topping or just cook without. Love this recipe. Made it a couple times already and I only found it a month ago!
I made this cake today at work. It was a huge hit, everyone loved it! Very moist & smells great! The crumble topping alone is sooo good to eat uncooked!
Delicious! I wasn't paying attention and added the topping before baking-- it turned out great. Some sank into the cake, making delicious soft toffee-like bits in the cake. I also used full-fat Greek yogurt instead of sour cream, which worked fine. This cake truly lives up to its name-- moist, flavorful, and easy to make! It made a great dessert, but would be good for breakfast/brunch too. Yum!
I love this recipe and have made it several times. It is delicious. I like it best with the walnut topping, but I've substituted pecans a couple of times. I always use a different baking pan when I make it, and today I made cupcakes! A perfect snack for anytime of the day!
This is a delicious cake! It's best when served warm!
I am not a baker, and I have made this 5 times in the past few weeks. Everyone LOVES it. My kids are addicted to it. I skip the nuts and use homemade applesauce that I canned at the end of the summer. When you add the topping, do it right away, before putting the cake in the oven, this keeps it from turning into a carmelized goo. Perfect for breakfast, dessert, or an after school snack.
This cake lives up to its name. It is moist and flavorful. A hit in the office.
