  • Combine applesauce, white sugar, brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract together in a bowl. Whisk flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon together in a separate bowl. Add flour mixture to the egg mixture, alternating with buttermilk just until batter is moistened. Fold coconut and walnuts into batter; pour into the prepared baking dish.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean, 45 to 55 minutes. Cool on a wire rack. Dust coffeecake with confectioners' sugar.

Found this recipe while looking around desperately trying to find a way to use the numerous jars of applesauce we keep getting from our neighbors! Just had some of this fresh out of the oven at the time of typing this... it tastes really good when it's hot! And the recipe is adaptable too I had to omit the coconut and walnuts due to a lack of said ingredients and had to substitute regular milk for the buttermilk for the same reason but it still turned out amazing. Will definitely make again. Read More

Based on the posted picture of this cake I thought it was exactly what I was looking for and it was! Nice density. Moist. Chewy. Not too sweet. Not too cinnamon-y. Just made this on a snowy afternoon and ate it warm out of the oven. Perfect. I did not add the powdered sugar topping since I was not looking for anything very sweet. Good comfort food as is.

I really liked this. I did not have walnuts or coconut so I made it without those add ins. I did not make any other changes. This is very moist and dense. It has a very intense apple flavor that my kids did not love however I really liked the flavor. Read More

Great recipe that is easy to change up. Used pecans from our tree and left out coconut, since hubby is not a fan. Made Apple sauce from 3 apples no one was going to eat, and was just a little short on buttermilk, so I added about 1 ounce of sour cream as well. Cooked for 40 minutes and came out super moist and just a little sticky on top, like coffee cake should! Finger and fork lickin’ good! It was sweet enough without powdered sugar, but we did top with a little whipped cream instead. Read More
