    This recipe contains ingredients of both Apple Sauce and Cinnamon but no mention whatsoever of Coffee! How's that supposed to work as a coffee cake??

    This turned out good a little too much sugar though >.<

    This coffee cake is very dense. Had to use a longer cooking time (middle was not getting done) Next time I make it I will cut way back on the sugar topping (way too much) and substitute walnuts.
