Amish Applesauce Cake Recipe ~ BundtBakers

This Amish Applesauce Cake is a wonderfully moist bundt cake that 
is full of deliciously warm spicy flavors.   

The theme chosen for Bundt Bakers for August 2022 is Bake A Bundt Using Apple Sauce. I loved this theme as I usually buy the Costco-sized jar of applesauce and then scramble to find ways to use it up before it is a forgotten relic in the back of my refrigerator. If this happens to you too, then do I have the bundt cake for you.

Once all of the ingredients for this cake have been measured, this cake is very easy to put together and have it baking in the oven.  It is such a great way to use of any excess applesauce you may have on hand or a great excuse to chop up some apples and make your own applesauce to use. This cake has a lovely soft texture and every slice is a delicious bite of apple, warm fall spices, and a little crunch from the nuts. If you choose to use raisins - and my choice would be golden raisins - then they would add an extra level of sweetness to the cake.  In this instance I choose to leave them out as one of my daughters believes that raisins are only good when they are used to make wine 😏. One change I made was to use chopped hazelnuts rather than walnuts or pecans - a choice that I would definitely repeat in the future as they gave a wonderful flavor to the cake. This cake would also be good with a caramel or apple cider drizzle.
