  • 1 18.25 ounce Spice Cake mix
  • 1 1/4 cups cinnamon applesauce
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup powdered sugar


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a bundt pan.
  • Add cake mix, applesauce, melted butter, milk, and eggs to the bowl of a mixer and beat until well combined, about 2 minutes.
  • Pour batter into prepared bundt pan and bake for 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Let cake cool for 10 minutes in the pan before flipping onto a cake plate. Cool completely before glazing.
  • To prepare the glaze, melt the butter in a small sauce pan over medium heat. Continue cooking until butter begins to turn a golden brown. Butter will foam.
  • Remove from the heat and whisk in the powdered sugar until smooth.
  • Drizzle the glaze over the top of the cake.
  • Serve immediately.
  • Store in the refrigerator, tightly covered, for up to 3 days.
