  • Cake:
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, plus more for pan
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Frosting:
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup


  1. 1. Make cake: Preheat oven to 325°F. Butter an 8-inch square, nonstick pan.
  2. 2. In a saucepan, melt butter with sugar over medium heat, stirring until butter has melted and sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat; whisk in applesauce. In a large bowl, whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Add applesauce mixture and stir until just combined.
  3. 3. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean, 35 to 40 minutes. Let cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes, then turn out onto rack to cool completely.
  4. 4. Make frosting: Using an electric mixer on medium-high speed, beat cream cheese and butter until blended. Beat in confectioners' sugar and maple syrup until smooth. Spread over cake; serve.
