Applesauce Breakfast Cake

        Happy Friday! Another week has finally come to an end. Our warm weather streak is all but just wasn't long enough and hopefully it comes back soon.

A few weeks ago the boys had a week vacation and I decided to surprise them with a cake for breakfast..because seriously,who doesn't want cake for breakfast? This wonderfully moist spice cake gets a little help from maple syrup thats drizzled over the top while it's still warm. It's low in fat so you can feel good about cutting a nice thick slice for yourself. I hope everyone has a good weekend!

Applesauce Breakfast Cake

1-1/2 cups All-purpose Flour
1/4 tsp. Baking Powder
3/4 tsp. Baking Soda
1/4 tsp. Salt
1 tsp. Apple pie Spice or Allspice

In bowl,whisk together the flour,baking powder,baking soda,salt and apple pie spice.
