    Directions:

    1. 1
      For the cake, grease a 9" x 13" cake pan; line the bottom with parchment paper.
    2. 2
      Set aside.
    3. 3
      In a large bowl, beat the butter with the brown sugar until fluffy; beat in the eggs, one at a time.
    4. 4
      Beat in the vanilla.
    5. 5
      In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, allspice and nutmeg.
    6. 6
      Stir into the butter mixture alternately with the applesauce and buttermilk, making 3 additions of dry ingredients and 2 of wet.
    7. 7
      Spread in the prepared pan.
    8. 8
      Bake in the centre of a 350 degree F oven until the cake tester inserted in the centre comes out clean, about 35 minutes.
    9. 9
      Let cool in the pan on a rack.
    10. 10
      For the icing, melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat.
    11. 11
      Add the brown sugar and corn syrup; bring to a boil, stirring constantly.
    12. 12
      Boil just until blended, about 1 minute.
    13. 13
      Remove from the heat.
    14. 14
      Using a wooden spoon, stir the milk and vanilla into the butter mixture.
    15. 15
      Again using a wooden spoon, beat in the icing sugar until smooth and spreadable; let cool for 1 minute.
    16. 16
      Spread over the top of the cake just to the edge, letting the icing drizzle over slightly.

      Made this for my family recently, and it was a huge hit! I made a few changes: used half the sugar (no one missed it), used half whole wheat flour (nobody noticed), added 1/2 t cloves with the other spices. Instead of icing, I just sprinkled cinnamon sugar across the top before baking. Moist, flavorful, and not too sweet.

      I gave this 4 stars. This cake and icing was so good. My family really enjoyed this cake. We think the spice flavor was a perfect blend. I followed the recipe just as described. I will make this again for sure. Thanks so much for posting a great recipe! Christine (internetnut)
