Old Fashioned Applesauce Spice Cake

As y'all have probably figured out, I positively adore baking. I really enjoy cooking too, but baking is my number one outlet when I'm stressed. Here is a recipe I found the other day when I was in need of some stress-relief. This is a yummy, winter weather treat!

1 box spice cake mix
3 eggs
1 1/4 cups applesauce
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)
1 container cream cheese frosting
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350.
Grease and flour 13x9-inch pan. 
Combine cake mix, eggs, applesauce and oil in large bowl. 
Beat at medium speed with electric mixer for 2 minutes. 
Stir in nuts. 
Pour into bake pan. 
 Bake at 350 ºF for 40 minutes.
Cool in pan 15 minutes. 
Turn right-side up. 
Cool completely. 

For frosting, combine frosting and cinnamon. 
Stir until blended. 
Spread over cooled cake.
