DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a Bundt pan.
  • Beat together the cake mix, water, applesauce, oil, eggs, and spice, scraping down the sides as needed. Fold in the nuts and raisins.
  • Pour into the Bundt pan and bake until golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean. (My oven has major hot spots and I have to really adapt the time, so it will vary among ovens. I'm going to say 45-55 minutes as an estimate.).
  • Cool 10 minute in the pan; turn onto a wire rack to cool completely.
  • When it is cool, place on a cake plate and drizzle with the caramel ice cream topping and nuts, if desired.
