A delicious applesauce cake.


Sundays are usually our “dessert day.” (Ok, Saturday, too.) We try not to bake or eat sweets during the week. This was our Sunday treat yesterday: cinnamon-chip applesauce cake with cream cheese frosting. I think it’s the perfect autumn dessert. The applesauce makes the cake very moist and helps keep it fresh for days.

I mostly followed the recipe from Smitten Kitchen. (How I love that blog. I have her book and it’s wonderful.) My only changes were using dark brown sugar instead of light brown sugar and substituting cinnamon chips for walnuts. I love walnuts but Edda despises nuts in baked goods. If you’ve never heard of cinnamon chips, you need to try them! I love them in banana bread, oatmeal cookies, muffins, scones, or just about anything else that would be good with some little cinnamon-flavored bits mixed in. (cinnamon chips link)


Edda insisted on sprinkling some extra chips on top for decoration. 🙂

  1. This looks seriously yummy. Did it take long to make?

      It didn’t take long at all! Only one layer; also you can leave it in the pan (as I did) which makes it even easier to frost. And I used store-bought unsweetened applesauce.
