How to make the Cake:
Whisk the applesauce, milk, olive oil, and vanilla in a large bowl. Set aside. It will be combined with the dry ingredients later. (see video above)
Sift flour into a separate bowl. I mistakenly sifted into the large bowl and moved it to a smaller bowl as seen in the video. Add sugar and baking powder (I substituted baking soda mixed with lemon juice - baking powder has corn in it. One teaspoon of lemon juice plus ¼ teaspoon baking soda makes 1 teaspoon of baking powder) and salt. (see video)
Add dry ingredients into wet. Fold together. Do not over mix. Grease your pan. I brushed a little olive oil into the bottom and sides of the pan. Scrape the batter into a greased pan. Set aside. (see video)
How to Make the Crumb Topping:
In a medium bowl, mix the flour, sugar or brown sugar, and cinnamon together. Pour the melted butter over the dry ingredients. Mix first with a spoon then with your hands. Sprinkle the crumbs over the batter. (see video)
Place pan into a preheated 325 degree oven. When a toothpick comes out clean, your cake is done. Allow to sit and set as it cools.
1 1/2 cups Gluten Free Flour, sifted
1/2 cup Sugar

2 tablespoons Olive Oil
