  • ¼ tsp ground cloves
  • 2 cups flour


  • 4 Tbsp butter
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • cup whipping cream
  • 1 cup powdered sugar


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Grease and flour a bundt pan. I always just use Pam baking spray to coat my bundt pan with and my cakes always come out perfectly.
  • In a bowl, beat the the sugars and eggs together until light. Then blend in the applesauce, oil and vanilla until smooth.
  • Add in the remaining cake ingredients and fold in just until combined.
  • Pour batter into the prepared bundt pan and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Allow cake to cool for 10 minutes then invert and allow to cool completely.
  • Once the cake is cooled, then make the glaze. Add butter, brown sugar, cream, and salt to a sauce pan and cook over medium heat. Stir until it comes to a boil. Boil for 1 minute and remove from heat.
  • Add the powdered sugar to the pan and whisk together until smooth. You may have to put a little muscle into it, but it will get smooth.
  • Place a piece of foil under the a cooling rack with the cake on it. The pour the glaze over the cake doing your best to evenly coat the entire cake. Makes 12 servings.
