As the mornings start to get a little colder and fall begins to really get into full swing, I find myself craving coffee and baked goods in the morning. For me this usually ends up meaning baked oatmeal or this week this lovely apple coffee cake. I debated what exactly to call it. It definitely isn’t a cake since it’s not overly sweet, but it’s not really a bread either, and it has a yummy cinnamon sugar topping so I ended up with coffee cake. And the batter is made with cream cheese and apple sauce which add lots of moisture without adding fat from butter or oil. It’s a delicious little bite of fall.

  4. In a small bowl combine 1/4 cup sugar with the 2 tsp of cinnamon. Toss the apples with 3 tbsp of this mixture. Set aside.
  5. Combine your dry ingredients flours, salt, and baking powder. Then slowly add to the wet ingredients and stir/beat until just combined. Fold in the apples.
  6. Spray a round cake pan (8-9 inches) with cooking spray and pour in the cake batter. Sprinkle the remaining cinnamon and sugar on top.
  7. Bake for 60 minutes or until the cake is cooked through completely.
