Apple Sauce Cake

This recipe is a spin off of Heidi Swanson's 101cookbooks "Unfussy Apple Cake". However, most ingredients are swapped, but the result is a similar light, not too sweet coffee cake. Feel free to make adaptations as you see fit. The flours can easily be swapt for whole wheat, all-purpose or your flour of choice. This cake is most delicious drizziled with yogurt or a dolop of creme fraiche and of course along sige your favorite cup of coffee or tea.
