Cream Cheese and Cinnamon Coffee Cake

How's that for alliteration?

I'm going to be honest with you, this cake freaking ROCKS. It's amazing. It started off as a basic coffee cake. Cream cheese and pecans really make this cake rockin'.

Cream Cheese and Pecan Coffee Cake

1/3 c. applesauce
1 egg, beaten
1/2 c. milk
1/4 c. packed brown sugar
1 c. flour mix or 1/3 c. each of brown rice flour, sorghum flour, and corn starch
1/2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. cinnamon


1/4 c. brown sugar
1 T. GF flour
1/4 t. cinnamon
1/4 c. nuts
1/2 block of cream cheese

Preheat your oven to 375.

Mix the applesauce, egg and milk in a bowl. Mix the dry ingredients together, and stir them into the wet ingredients. Pour into a greased 8 x 8 pan.

For the topping, mix together the brown sugar, flour, and cinnamon. Cut small cubes of cream cheese and place them evenly on top of the batter. Sprinkle the nuts on top next, and finish with the brown sugar mixture.

Bake for 20-25 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean. (If you don't hit a cream cheese pocket)

Let it cool for a while until you try and cut into it, because the cream cheese needs to set. It sinks to the middle of the cake as it bakes, creating this great middle layer of cream cheese wonderfulness.
