Ingredients

Nonstick spray

2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking soda

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon table salt

1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg

2 sticks unsalted butter, at room temperature

2 cups light brown sugar

2 large eggs

2 cups no-sugar-added applesauce

Powdered sugar, optional

Directions

Special equipment:
Bundt cake pan
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Adjust the racks to the center of the oven. Spray a Bundt pan with nonstick spray. 
  2. Whisk together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, ginger, cloves and nutmeg in a large bowl. Beat together the butter and brown sugar in a separate bowl with an electric hand-held mixer until light and fluffy, about 4 minutes. Add the eggs, one at a time, until incorporated. Alternate adding the flour mixture and the applesauce, ending with the flour, being careful not to over-mix. Transfer the batter to the prepared Bundt pan and bake until a toothpick inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean, 55 minutes. Cool completely before inverting. Sprinkle with powdered sugar if using.
