Applesauce Ginger Cake with Maple Glaze

A great vegan dessert for those who like their sweets to have a bit of a kick. The cinnamon aroma and apple sauce combine beautifully by themselves in this vegan cake, but it is the ginger chunks that add variation and surprise as they deliver a welcome warmth to the overall taste. The maple glaze looks gorgeous and is likewise delicious but it is entirely optional if you wish to cut down on the sugar content of this fat-free delight.
