   cool. Cream remaining 1/2 c butter and granulated sugar until light. Add
   egg. Beat until smooth. Add applesauce and blend well. Combine flour,

   Use small flexible knife to separate cake from sides of pan. Invert pan on

   in pan). Serve warm. Pass CINNAMON CREAM TOPPING in separate dish. Beat
   cream cheese and sour cream until smooth. Gradually add cinnamon, then
   sugar, mixing well after each addition until smooth. Let stand 15 minutes
   at room temperature before serving. Source: Jill Van Cleave, JR Dessert
