Units Scale


Glaze (optional)

  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tbsp – 1 tbsp milk


  • First spray a Bundt cake pan with non-stick cooking spray and preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine granulated sugar, melted butter, applesauce, and apple pie spice and whisk together until smooth and combined. Add in eggs and whisk until incorporated.
  • Next add in flour in 1/2 cup increments and fold in until only a small amount of flour remains showing. Gently fold in raisins and nuts and stir until just combined, being careful to not over-mix.
  • Carefully pour batter into the pan and bake in the oven for 38-42 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.
  • Let the cake cool for 10 minutes in the pan on a wire cooling rack, then flip/transfer to the cake plate you will serve it on.
  • Allow the cake to cool an additional 20-30 minutes before glazing.
  • While cake cools, prepare glaze by whisking together powered sugar, cinnamon, and milk until a smooth, drizzle-consistency has formed.
  • If desired, place small strips of parchment paper underneath your cake, and spoon glaze on top. Let it set up for a few minutes before slicing and serving. Enjoy!
