Applesauce Cake

I make this cake with my recipe for homemade applesauce. I have the link to the recipe n the instructions below. You can use jarred applesauce as well. This cake is moist and has a great mix of spices in it. I also use organic coconut palm sugar for the brown sugar, but regular light brown sugar will work fine too. We eat it without any frosting but you could add a glaze or top it with confectioners sugar.Sometimes we drizzle a little pure maple syrup over it! I hope you try this cake and enjoy it as much as our family does!

Ingredients

2 c
all purpose flour
1/2 c
coconut palm sugar or light brown sugar, lightly packed
1 1/2 tsp
baking soda
1 tsp
salt
2 tsp
cinnamon
1 tsp
ginger
1/2 tsp
allspice, ground
1 tsp
pumpkin pie spices (pre-mixed)
1/2 c
sugar
2 c
applesauce, unsweetened
2
eggs, lightly beaten
2 tsp
vanilla extract
1/4 c
canola oil or vegetable oil
2 Tbsp
pure maple syrup

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a bundt pan with cooking spray, I also add a layer of Baker's Joy spray to keep the cake from sticking. Just make sure the pan is coated well.
2
In a large bowl, sift together dry ingredients. Mix in coconut palm sugar (or brown sugar). Stir ingredients to blend them well.
3
In a medium bowl lightly beat eggs and add other wet ingredients. Blend well.
4
Combine wet and dry ingredients into large bowl. Mix just until combined, do not over mix.
5
Put batter into prepared bundt pan and smooth to even out batter. Bake in the center of the oven for 40-45 minutes. Ovens vary so test at 40 minutes to see if toothpick comes out clean, add 5 minute intervals as needed.
6
Cool cake for 10 minutes before turning it onto a plate for serving.
