This turned out quite nicely. I didn't change a thing.

REVIEW: 3 star recipe rating
I omitted the nuts from the topping but followed the recipe to a T otherwise. It wasn't bad but I think it could be better. Maybe cinnamon in the cake batter instead of just in the topping. Or some other spices. Or use some of the flavored applesauce instead of regular.
