Applesauce Spice Cake

Fall one of my favorite seasons. Leaves turn beautiful autumn colors, the weather gets cooler. The smell of warm spices, and for us Cake Slice bakers the beginning of a new book. This year we will be baking from "Great Cakes" by Carole Walter.

And our very first bake from this book is Applesauce Spice Cake. A delicious  perfectly balanced spice cake with a bite of tart apples and toasted pecans.

Drizzled with a delicious Brown Sugar Glaze. I added extra cream to my glaze recipe, so it turned out thinner than the original recipe. I loved how it covered the cake in a thin glaze. To me this glaze tasted like caramel. It was absolutely delicious!

I had a warm slice and thought the cake was absolutely delicious! Loved all the warm spices. Definitely a fall cake.

My whole family enjoyed the cake. We had the first half warm and the second half the next day. I think the cake was better warm. It reminded me of caramel apples. Loved it!

Don't forget to check back each month 
on the 20th, that's when we reveal our cake of the month.
