Low-Fat Apple Double Cinnamon Coffee Cake

The cinnamon makes this cake a dark brown color.

2/3 cup flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon
pinch of salt
1 1/2 cups chopped apples
1 egg
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup applesauce

1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 tbsp flour
1 tbsp whole wheat flour
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tbsp margarine

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 

Grease 9inch cake pan. (I use foil pans so it's easier to freeze the cake)

Combine wet ingredients. Add dry ingredients. Combine gently. Batter will be a little lumpy. Pour into cake pan. 

Mix topping ingredients until crumbly. Sprinkle evenly on top of batter. 

Bake for 25-35 minutes until toothpick inserted in center of cake comes out clean. It takes mine about 35 minutes to bake. I think it depends on the moisture content of the apples and applesauce. 

Freeze when cool for up to 3 months. Serve warm or room temperature.
