Applesauce Cake with Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Swirls #SundaySupper

Applesauce Cake with Peanut Butter Swirls

Autumn is officially here. Shorter days and cooler nights. All the leaves showing their true colors. Vivid reds, oranges and yellows peeking through the trees. Time for pumpkins, hayrides, corn mazes and apple picking. Time to break out my flannel shirts, and pack away the shorts.
Oh, and the food!
Crockpot beef stew filling the kitchen with mouth-watering promises. Apple crisp and warm cider. Roasted Butternut and Acorn squash appears in soups or stuffed and pumpkin everything.

This week Sunday Supper welcomes fall and celebrates autumn flavors!

I couldn’t decide which symbol of fall foods to choose. So I did what I usually do when faced with a similar situation. Try to use a few together in one dish!

That explains the extra long title this week.

Applesauce Cake with Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Swirls!

I love applesauce in just about anything. By itself, baked in cake or added to pork chops with a bit of cinnamon of course!

Peanut butter reminds me of fall. That’s the time to harvest the roasting ones. When the leaves turn yellow. As far as cream cheese goes, do you really need to pair it with a season? I feel cream cheese is a 4 season treat.

I’m ready to sit down with a piece of this cake, some warm apple cider and a good book. There is plenty here. Will you join me? What can I get you to drink?
