- 1 cup water
- 2/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 1/2 cup finely chopped pecans, toasted
- 1 teaspoon apple pie spice

Reviews for Apple-Spice Angel Food Cake
"Awesome cake. Hubby an I both have a sweet tooth and since this is healthy, I won't feel guilty fixing it. Thanks for the recipe."
"Yummy! Served with whipped cream, but when that was gone tried it with vanilla ice cream and hot caramel sauce. Wonderful, if not quite as healthy."
"Our family and friends love this cake. So easy to make too."
