Applesauce Coffee Cake.

Hello everybody.

As I promised yesterday I made this light easy cake with the applesauce I cooked yesterday,well it is light but maybe needs a bit more sugar. People on diet or have diabetes will love it .

I found many other recipes some even without eggs at all,hopefully will try one of them later on.

Lunch was some leftover mujadara and spinach with cheese pie or pizza and za’tar manousheh .
