Ingredients
Cake:

•1 cup unsweetened applesauce
•1/4 cup vegetable oil
•2 cups white sugar

•3 cups all-purpose flour
•2 tsp baking soda
•2 tsp baking powder

Instructions
Cake: Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray and flour a 10 inch tube (bundt) pan. Sift together flour, soda, baking powder, cinnamon, pumpkin spice and salt. In separate bowl, combine applesauce, oil and sugar. Add eggs one at a time, mixing well. Stir together the wet and dry ingredients, beating until smooth.
