Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F; oil a 9x9-inch baking pan.
  2. In a small bowl, combine flour, spices, baking soda, and salt. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars until fluffy. Add applesauce, egg, and vanilla extract and mix well. Add flour mixture and blend until just combined. Spread batter evenly in the bottom of the prepared pan.
  3. In a medium bowl, toss sliced apples with flour, sugar and cinnamon. Spread evenly over cake layer.
  4. In a large bowl, combine oats, flour, sugar, spices, and salt. Add cold butter and mix until the butter has fully combined with the dry and medium chunks of dough begin to form. Sprinkle crumble topping over the apples.
  5. Bake until no cake batter shows on a tester when inserted into the very center of the dish, about 35 minutes. Remove from oven and drizzle caramel sauce over the top. Return to the oven and bake another 5 minutes.
  6. Let cool at least 30 minutes before slicing and servings. Yields one 9x9-inch square pan.
