These adorable cakes are popular and pretty, but we’re warning you: The frosting is addictive and tastes scrumptious on a spoon as an accompaniment to coffee

These make a welcome and lovely addition to any mishloach manos. Warning: The frosting is addictive and tastes scrumptious as is, on a spoon, as an accompaniment to coffee.
Preheat oven to 325°F (170°C). Combine apples with 3 Tbsp sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg if desired. Set aside. Beat together sugar and oil. Add eggs, orange juice, and vanilla. Add dry ingredients to creamed mixture. Beat until smooth. Add applesauce and mix until just combined. Pour a little batter into greased mini Bundt pans. Then add some of the apple mixture. Repeat. End with layer of batter on top. Bake for 25–30 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out dry. If making one 9-inch round pan, bake for 40–45 minutes. If making one large Bundt pan, bake for 1 hour. Set cake or cakes to cool. For the frosting, melt margarine. Add brown sugar and soy milk. Heat to boiling and stir constantly. Boil gently for 5 minutes. Let cool 10 minutes. Pour into mixing bowl. Add vanilla, confectioners’ sugar, and salt. Beat until smooth and spreadable, frost cake, and freeze or serve.
Note Freezes well with or without frosting.
TIP You will have leftover frosting, so freeze for later use.
