Applesauce makes this cake wonderfully moist while the walnut crumb topping adds a welcome crunch. Homemade applesauce is best, but store-bought is good, too.

Lovely recipe, light and moist. My only critique was the crumble way too sweet, next time I’ll cut my 1/3.
Delicious! This was very easy to make, and came out perfectly. Very moist. Everyone loved it.
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.
