Fat-Free Vegan Applesauce Spice Cake

I used my cute little tube pan to make an applesauce cake...

It turned out so cute and good...

...this is one of Scout's favorite cakes and I often make it as Cupcakes with frosting or as muffins for breakfast without...

This time we had it warm with a little Soya-Too whipped topping - so good...

Fat-Free Vegan Applesauce Spice Cake

1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup applesauce
1 cup cold water
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/4 teaspoon cloves
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Mix all of the above ingredients and then add

2 teaspoons vinegar - stir in quickly

Bake at 350 F until cake tests done.

Makes 1 9 x 9 or 8 x 8 or 12 cupcakes or 1 demi-tube pan.


  1. I love fat-free cakes! It makes eating dessert guilt-free :)

  2. This looks so yummy! I'm going to have to give it a try when things slow down a bit here. And I'm pretty sure I could pass it off on the "new improved healthy diet" kick.

  3. mmmmm. there is something about apples in cakes that is just right, don't you think? and it does look so cute!

  4. yes, it is cute!! yum. fat-free, spread with earth balance - double yum!! hehehe

    love, k

  5. You know me, I like fat and bacon (otherwise I'd get kicked out Indiana), but there is little more than I like more than an applesauce cake. Yummy. I've never tried a spice applesauce cake. Don't tell the Hoosiers, but I think I'll try a vegan recipe!

    Beautiful cake!


  6. MMM...looks so delicious! Thanks for the recipe, I'll be trying this one!

  7. Fat free cake that tastes good. That is what I need. I'm going to print this recipe out and bake it for the grils, next time we catch up. Wont tell them it's fat free either.

  8. I wonder if I have applesauce in the house? I may need to make it right now!

  9. that sounds super yummy! i will try it next time i have applesauce in the house!
