I never had Applesauce Cake, but I found this recipe online. Personally, I would leave out the cloves and allspice (not a fan) but the picture looked like what you described. Enjoy!
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon clove
1/2 teaspoon allspice
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup water
1 1/2 cups unsweetened applesauce
1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2 Grease a 9×13 baking dish.
3 Combine all ingredients; pour in prepared pan.
4 Bake 60-65 minutes or until done.February 3, 2011 6:33 pm at 6:33 pm #736371s2021Member

I wonder if this cake could successfully be baked in a bundt pan? I would NEVER leave out cloves or allspice. They add so much flavor to my apple kugels, cranberry relish, and most especially they are the secret ingredient in my prune filling for the hamantashen. A little goes a long way, though.February 3, 2011 6:51 pm at 6:51 pm #736375oomisParticipant
