It’s a quick and easy cake with a homely face. But it’s more sophisticated than it appears, being moist with applesauce, yet crunchy on top, and perfumed with lemon.
Pretty good cake for about 10 minute’s work. Hopefully autumn’s apples inspired you to make home-made applesauce. Which of course went into my applesauce oatmeal muffins. But, and let’s be realistic here, canned applesauce works fine.
A neighbor taught me this recipe long ago, when we were both still young mothers. I was in the middle of a domestic emergency in my Jerusalem apartment.
