Spicy Applesauce Cake

Got this from my late cousin--love the way it tastes! I've also played around with the spices, varying the amounts to make each cake a bit different from the last. You can also sub 2 cups of Bisquick for the flour, baking powder and baking soda and increase the applesauce to 2 cups for a fuller-bodied cake. Just bake about 10 minutes longer.
