"I prepared this cake for the first time since the cooking challenge this week was for winter squash. I DID make my usual recipe adjustments and this recipe was among the recipes I'd adjusted! With the crumb mixture, I omitted the oats! For me, this worked out well-especially since it was a squash coffee cake, I figured with just a regular crumb topping, folks would go for that! cake: I used 1/2 cup margarine, rather than butter-flavored shortening! I also used: 1 Tbsp. ground Navel orange for flavor! I'd used 1 tsp. each of baking soda and salt instead of 1/2 tsp.! I'd kept the baking powder and flour the same! I also used 1/4 tsp. EACH of ground nutmeg, ginger and ground cloves! For the squash, I'd cooked a 12-oz. package of frozen squash in our microwave oven as package directed and measured it out when it was finished with the prescribed time. I got exactly 1 cup! I added the applesauce along with the sifted dry ingredients to batter after adding squash and vanilla to creamed mixture and beat 5 minutes. I'd creamed the sugar and butter until light and fluffy and then added the eggs, beating 5 minutes each on medium speed. I'd then blended in squash and vanilla, beating 5 minutes on medium speed. I did grease and flour a 9" springform pan, spread 1/2 the batter into prepared pan, then sprinkled with 1/2 of the crumb mixture. I then spooned rest of batter evenly over crumb mixture and topped with remaining crumb mixture.

I baked 50 minutes at 350o F. I had placed the cake pan on a baking sheet, with bottom wrapped in aluminum foil so the bottom would not leak! Taste of Home gave this very helpful tip! I did cool in pan 10 minutes, then carefully removed sides, turned cake over and eased the bottom of pan off of the cake. I then turned cake right-side up to cool completely.
I purposely included applesauce IN the batter, rather than spreading over cake batter!
I also left the cake UNGLAZED! Thank you for this recipe! delowenstein"

"I didn't have a springform pan so instead I baked it in 3 round cake pans, it tastes delicious but it turned out dry. I'm not sure yet it it was the recipe or baking it in 3 pans that made it dry, but it will need some adjustments for me to make it again."

"Great cake. Used apple butter istead of applesauce. Don't really use instant oats but found a packet of cinnamon spice instant so scooped the oats out of it and used. Came out SO GOOD!"
