- 1/3 cup butter, softened
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 2 eggs

- In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar until crumbly, about 2 minutes. Add eggs; mix well. Beat in milk and applesauce (mixture may appear curdled).

Very good! I substituted almonds for the pecans and used almond milk. I had never made a coffee cake before, and was unsure how this would turn out, because the batter was very sticky and dough-like, and was hard to spread in the pan, but it turned out very nice when it was all done. Would definitely make again!

Very good and very easy to make. I omited the frosting, because I was out of confectioners sugar.
