Reduced Fat Pumpkin Coffee Cake

With pumpkin as its star, and a bit of apple sauce, this pumpkin coffee cake doesn’t need the excess butter to make it moist or delicious. It’s a healthy way to remind ourselves of the taste of fall. I tested the results on my toddler’s playgroup and both mom’s and kids seemed to give it a stamp of approval. My husband says it’s really good too.
