Apple sauce and whole grain flour make this cinnamon-rich cake deceptively healthy.
1 C applesauce*
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla
½ C raw sugar
½ C brown sugar
1 3/4 C whole grain flour blend( equal parts, spelt, brown rice, and barley) or optionally soft white wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon
1 C cinnamon chips**
3 T brown sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
½ C pecans

1. Add to a large bowl the applesauce, vanilla, and both of the eggs. Mix until the eggs are fully incorporated.

2. Next add the flour, baking soda, turbinado, and cinnamon. Carefully mix all of the ingredients together.

3. In a separate bowl add 3/4 C of the cinnamon chips, reserving the rest for the topping. Toss them with 2 T whole grain flour. This helps them so they don't all sink to the bottom and are evenly dispersed throughout the batter.

4. Fold in the cinnamon chips.

5. Pour batter into baking dish. Top with the cinnamon sugar topping mixture and remaining cinnamon chips. Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.

* I like Grandma Hoerner’s original “big slice” recipe apple sauce with cinnamon. It is chunky and fruit juice sweetened it works really well in this recipe. I found this applesauce at Target.

** I found the cinnamon chips at Harmon's

DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME OR INGREDIENTS ON THIS ONE!!! I made it twice & since there's no pan size (I used 9" round) or baking temp (I used 350 & 375) I had to guess. The pecans began to burn but the center never did cook on either one. The cinnamon chips taste artificial & are disgusting! On the second one I eliminated the chips & it tasted as though it needed salt. My husband didn't want to hurt my feelings, but admitted he didn't like either one. I agreed. I threw away both cakes!
