Warm Gooey Applesauce Spice Cake

What’s not to like about applesauce spice cake? It’s vegan, warm, gooey, and full of spices. Here are a few reasons why this treat is so enjoyed by many.

The wonderful thing about applesauce spice cake is that it is a tasty combination of several spices. This includes cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. Together, they give the cake a unique flavor that is hard to resist. The great thing about these spices is that they can be used in other recipes as well.


For example, nutmeg goes well with applesauce oatmeal while cinnamon can be used in baked goods such as pies and pastries. Allspice can also be used to add flavor to stews or soups. In addition to the spices, the applesauce itself is also a key ingredient in this cake recipe. Not only does it add sweetness, but it also helps to moisten the cake. This is important because a dry cake can be quite crumbly and difficult to eat.

Another reason why this cake is so enjoyable is that it can be eaten as a snack or for dessert. It is perfect for times when you want something sweet but does want to eat a slice of cake. The small pieces are also easy to grab and take with you on the go. That’s why applesauce spice cake is a versatile treat that can be enjoyed by everyone.
