Caramel Glazed Applesauce Spice Cake

My Todd really loves a spice cake, and this applesauce cake is one of his favourites.   He loves apple anything to begin with, but when you combine the flavour of apples in a cake along with the warm baking spices, he is in cake heaven.  He would probably rather have an apple pie for sure, but this is a close second on his list of teatime loves.

It's not surprising really . . .  this cake is moist and filled with lovely warm flavours . . .  cinnamon, ginger, allspice  . . .  and the surprising addition of black pepper.

 It smells like heaven when it is baking  . . .  it smells like all the comforts of mom, home and apple pie  . . .  but it's a cake, not a pie.  You can hardly wait for it to come out of the oven!  But that's not al . . .  there's even more deliciousness!

Look at  that glorious caramel glaze  . . .  oh so rich and delicious . . .  dripping down and gilding all those lovely spiced crevices and curves!  Just like a warm brown sugar fudge  . . .  like my mom's fudge . . .  poured over the cake . . .

This is the perfect weekend cake . . .  the cake your family will love.  The cake your family will beg you to make again and again.   I sure wish I could have a piece . . .  sigh  . . .


I confess I had a little corner, a tiny smidgen . . . it is the heavendom of delicious cakedom . . .  and that eensie peensie tiny morsel was pure bliss.  The only way this could get any better is if you topped it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
