This is a great cake, very moist -- used it as a fruitcake for the holidays -- added candied fruit and chopped nuts. Amazed people who were not a fruitcake fans.

What a delicious little bundt cake...perfect for the two of us! I substituted (drained) mashed canned pears for the applesauce, 1/2 c. chopped candied ginger for the raisins, and powdered ginger for the cloves. I also added a powdered sugar glaze. Yum! I will definitely be making this again and look forward to trying it with applesauce.
