Treat Tuesday-Applesauce Cake

img_1515I’m craving fall flavors, even though fall seems elusive right now.  This cake just what I needed.  I call it the Applesauce Cake because when the apples cook into the cake that is exactly what it tastes like on the top layer.

img_1500I used Granny Smith apples cut into sections.  They get dropped into a pan of honey and lemon juice and cook until they are nice and tender.

img_1507Then the best part, cinnamon and sugar!  Didn’t you eat cinnamon and sugar toast as a kid for breakfast?  It was one of my favorites, but now I rely on Trader Joes to make it for me…
