Glazed Applesauce Pecan Snack Cake (no eggs)

Being blessed with several containers of applesauce,

I went in search of an easy applesauce cake or bread recipe.

I’m all about easy and quick recipes.

I like to know there’s something yummy baking in the oven

while I’m surfing the web or working on my

ever-growing pile of laundry,

but I don’t want to spend a lot of time

on a recipe with tons of ingredients that I probably

don’t have anyway.

Yesterday the girls and my hubby went sledding (again!)

and so I decided to use up some of the applesauce

I’d been blessed with. I thought it’d be nice to

come home to a cozy warm house smelling of sugar and cinnamon.

I found an easy  recipe and  tweaked it according to my preferences.

The result was wonderful!

(That’s right – no eggs!)

Quick. Simple. Easy.

Here’s my version.  Make it soon!

Glazed Applesauce Pecan Snack Cake

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup butter, softened

1 cup white sugar

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 cup unsweetened applesauce

pecan pieces, optional

Preheat oven to 350º.   Grease and flour a 9 inch square baking dish.  In a medium mixing bowl, combine flour, cinnamon, and salt.  Set aside.

In a large bowl or with a stand mixer, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.  Dissolve baking soda into applesauce and mix into creamed butter.  Add flour mixture. Mix until smooth.

Pour batter into prepared dish.  Sprinkle pecan pieces over cake batter.  Bake at 350º for 30 -40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into center of cake comes out clean.


1 cup powdered sugar

1 T milk

2 T melted butter


Mix together and drizzle over slightly cooled cake.

    G this cake tastes as good as it looks, and it barely takes 5 minutes to throw together. I made it this morning, and will bake a DOUBLE batch next time. I was worried about the “no egg” aspect but it definitely works, and works WONDERFULLY!!! Thank you for such a delicious recipe!

    • I’m glad you made it! It is no doubt the easiest cake I’ve ever made. Here lately I’ve even baked it in bread pans for gift giving. One thing I like to do is sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on the greased pan before I pour the batter in and then sprinkle the same on top of the cake/bread. It just adds that little bit of extra.
