I wanted a spice cake but I wanted it to be a little different than he recipes I usually find. This is what I came up with and it is delicious. Really great to warm a slice in the microwave with a hot cup of coffee for breakfast. You could use any kind of nut you want.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease and flour loaf pan. Cream butter and cream cheese together, add in both sugars and mix, add eggs, vanilla and applesauce, mix. Add remaining ingredients, except nuts, mix well, stir in nuts. Pour into prepared loaf pan and bake at 325 degrees for 45 -60 minutes or until toothpick inserted in middle comes out clean. When cool dust top with confectioners sugar.
