Cinnamon Caramel Applesauce Coffee Cake goes great with a cup of coffee for a fall breakfast

It also works as a dessert or a snack. The coffee cake is studded with chopped pecans and lots of caramel chips. It is baked in a bundt pan and drizzled in a powdered sugar glaze. Applesauce helps keep the cake moist and cinnamon adds fall flavor.


This from scratch Caramel Cinnamon Applesauce Coffee Cake is a cinch to make. It tastes best served a little warm. Fresh from the oven is best, but leftovers can be brought back to life in just a few seconds in the microwave.

What is it about cinnamon that makes it taste so much better warm?


Store leftovers at room temperature in a tubberware container or ziptop bag.


If you have a half empty jar of applesauce in your fridge, I can’t think of a better way to use it than this Cinnamon Caramel Applesauce Coffee Cake.
