Ladies Who Brunch

A couple weeks ago I had a little brunch with some of my sorority sisters.
The brunch was a potluck, and I brought a delicious coffee cake.
This recipe is SO easy to make, I wanted to share it (and some photos!) below:

Applesauce Coffee Cake


1 box dry yellow cake mix (reserve 2 tablespoons, see below)
15-16 oz. jar cinnamon applesauce
3 eggs
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Streusel Topping

1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons yellow cake mix
2 tablespoons cold butter
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine cake mix, applesauce, eggs, sugar, and cinnamon; mix well.

Combine all Streusel Topping ingredients thoroughly with a fork until crumbly and butter is incorporated into all.

Grease 8x8 pan.  (You can do this in 2 loaf pans, as well) Pour half the batter in, and sprinkle half of the streusel topping on top. Add rest of batter. Add remaining topping.
Bake 35 minutes or until toothpick inserted in middle comes out clean. Don't overbake.
That's it!!

 Brunch is always better with twin babies!!

 ...and good friends :)
