Freshly Baked Goods Friday: Applesauce Crumb Cake Edition

Some of you (you know who you are!) have suggested that the previous post was – how shall I put this? – quite the blogging cop-out.

But before you rush to award it the much-coveted “Most Unoriginal Post Award,” just wait until you read THIS post.

After all, as the title implies, it’s supposed to be a recipe post. (Please stop by and taste the results, if you happen to find yourself near TRLEOOB* tonight!)

And yet, the recipe comes from Mimi over at Israeli Kitchen; Our Favorite Bat Sherut did the baking; and YZG took care of the photography.

So, where did that leave me and why am I the one getting credit for this post, you [understandably] ask?

Well, SOMEBODY had to click “publish”…

Applesauce Crumb Cake

Slightly modified from here.


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2½ cups flour
  • 2 heaping tsp baking powder (i.e. one envelope for my Israeli readers)
  • Zest of one lemon – chopped
  • 2/3 cup canola oil
  • 1 jar applesauce (about 2½ cups)


  • 2 TBSP sugar (next time, I would perhaps increase this to 3 TBSP)
  • 1 TBSP cinnamon


Combine sugar, flour, baking powder, and lemon zest. Add oil and mix through. Spread half the dough into a baking-paper-lined 9x9 square baking pan.

Spread the applesauce over the dough in the pan, and crumble the remaining dough over the applesauce. Combine the topping ingredients and sprinkle over the cake.

Bake at 375 degrees for 30-45 minutes or until done.

Store in the refrigerator.

!בתאבון ושבת שלום
