1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (or 175 degrees C) and grease a 9x13 inch pan with nonstick spray.

2. In a large bowl large bowl whisk the eggs and brown sugar together until well combined then add the apple sauce, Greek yogurt, melted butter, apple pie spice, and vanilla and whisk until everything is well combined.
3. Add the Bisquick and switch over to a rubber spatula. Stir the wet and dry ingredients together until they’re well combined then stir in the grated apple.
4. Spread the cake evenly across the bottom of the prepared pan and bake it on the center rack of your preheated oven for 50 to 55 or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. I baked mine for 53 minutes. Cool the cake completely before glazing.
5. To make the glaze, stir all of the glaze ingredients together until smooth. Start off with one tablespoon of the liquid, and add by additional 1/2 tablespoonfuls until you’ve reached the desired consistency. Use a fork or a spoon to drizzle the glaze on the cake until you have the coverage you’d like.

6. Allow the glaze to dry for a few hours then serve warm

Editors Review

Coffeecake may seem easy to make but its very hard to get the right dense and moist texture. This cake uses applesauce in the ingredient list and that contributes to the dense moistness. Its almost like a huge soft delicious coffee brownie.
