Wonderful Applesauce Spice Cake

Wonderful Applesauce Spice Cake created by Engrossed

There are many different recipes for applesauce cake this one has remained a favorite, it's a really moist cake with tons of flavor, there is really no need for frosting just top with a couple of tablespoons of whipped cream or Cool Whip topping --- if you are using sweetened applesauce I suggest to maybe cut down the sugar slightly unless you prefer a sweeter cake --- I think you will really enjoy this cake!

    Sorry, Kitten. I usually love all your recipes but this cake had too much strong spice flavor and was much more dense than I was looking for. Totally edible (and others liked it). It just wasn't "flipping my switch".

    Can I make this recipe in a bundt pan. Would I need to change anything to do so? And I have someone who is allergic to nuts. Do I need to do anything different if I leave the nuts out?

    This cake is soooooo good, & moist. I just had unexpected company and made it. I did frost it with the maple 5 min. frosting, but kind-of wish I hadn't. The cake is so good, next time I will not frost it. Thanks Kittencal, You always make me look good. LOL

    This is the best cake I've ever eaten! I've made it twice in a week and suspect I am addicted to it. I thought chocolate cake was my favorite, but not anymore. Thanks so much for this recipe:)
