What You'll Do
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Coat the pan with cooking spray and don't be shy.
|Whisk together flour, baking soda, kosher salt, cinnamon and set aside.|
|Using a mixer, beat butter, brown sugar, honey, and eggs until fluffy.|
|Lower mixer speed and add the dry mixture SLOWLY to avoid a flour shower. Blend well.|
|Add the applesauce and beat for 10 seconds.|
|Pour batter in well-greased pan. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes in a 350 degree, preheated oven.|
What You'll Need to Know to Finish
When a toothpick inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean, remove from oven. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes, then invert cake on plate, ridge side up. Cool completely. When cool, dig in and sprinkle on some powdered sugar if you are so inclined. Enjoy!
This cake is great in the morning with tea or coffee. Do you like to have sweet or savory for breakfast?
