How to make it

Add applesauce, oil and eggs; blend at low speed until moistened. Beat 2 minutes at high speed. Stir in pecans. Pour batter into greased and floured pans.
  • Bake at 350 degrees F. for 30 to 40 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes. Remove from pans; cool 45 minutes or until completely cooled.
  • In small heavy saucepan over medium heat, heat butter until light golden brown, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; cool. In large bowl, combine powdered sugar, 4 tablespoons of the apple juice and the browned butter; blend at low speed until moistened. Continue beating until well blended, adding additional apple juice for desired spreading consistency.
  • To assemble cake, place 1 cake layer, top side down, on serving plate; spread evenly with about 1/4 of frosting. Top with remaining cake layer, top 1/4 of frosting. Top with remaining cake layer, top side up. Spread sides and top of cake with remaining frosting. Garnish with purchased brittle, if desired.
