This Applesauce Bake is easy to make, and with just five ingredients! You can serve it warm with ice cream, at room temperature with tea, or it's even delish right out of the fridge!  

Sweet and buttery, with a texture similar to a fantastic bread pudding, this is a perfect comfort dessert to serve any season. 

Tip: If you bring it to a party, make a double batch!
