Spice Cake Recipe without Applesauce

Running out of applesauce? How about a Spice cake without the applesauce? What? Applesauce gives a nice flavor and texture to your spice cake, but the whole flavor of the spice cake lies in all the spices you add to it. Whip up some cream and add a dollop on top, your spice cake has now turned into a rich and creamy cake, and you’ll never notice any lack of flavor in your cake!
