Recipe Rerun and a Happy Friday to you!

I made this twice in the past few days and plan on making it again this weekend.

It has to be THE easiest and best cake I’ve every made! with the fewest ingredients.

I’ve discovered you can even make it in a bread pan and call it Applesauce Nut Bread!

Here’s something I do to make this cake extra tasty:

I always grease/butter/or spray the bottom of the cake dish or bread pan then sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.  I do this on top as well when I’m baking it in a bread pan and don’t plan on glazing the bread.  I suppose you could do it even if you do glaze the “bread”.  It adds a little yum-yum flavor!

Bake it.  Soon.

Today I’m linking with


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

1/2 cup butter, softened
