Hi, just made this cake for a group event. Upped the applesauce to 1 cup, used half light brown and white sugars, added cinnamon, baked in a Bundt pan for 50 minutes at 350 degrees. Rave reviews, none left, perfect w/coffee, tea or milk. Enjoy!

Made this as is on Easter, 2008 to go with Dark Chocolate Ice Cream (#27086)--needed something to somewhat tone down the richness of the ice cream. What a great combination!! Everybody took a copy of this recipe home. I didn't use the glaze as we were serving ice cream--glaze would add that little of sweetness. Thanks.
