Jane's notes for this recipe:
I know this came out of a magazine many years ago, it is all yellowed and taped to a 3x5 file card. I cannot tell which mag is was now it was so long ago. I have been making this many many years.
To me it is a perfect little coffee cake, and makes up so quick and easy.
It needs no frosting, and is a nice moist little cake.
Make it Your Way...

Personalize This


Spray the insides of a bundt cake pan with non stick spray liberally.
Blend cinnamon and sugar, and sprinkle 1 tablespoon of this on the inside of the pan, reserve rest for the cake.
Blend cake mix, applesauce, and eggs until well blended. Beat according to package directions.
Set aside 1 1/2 cups batter.
Pour remaining batter into prepared pan.
Sprinkle the reserved sugar cinnamon mixture over batter.
Top with reserved batter.
Bake in a pre heated 350° oven for 35 to 45 minutes, or until done.

Sounds Wonderful, Jane.
I have some Apples I need to do Something with. I may just grate some into this Cake, along with the Applesauce.. I love Applesauce Spice Cakes, with Raisins in them also. Old Time Ctry Flavors.

This sounds so easy and delicious. I think I have an opened jar of applesauce in the fridge. I may try this tomorrow.
