  • Whisk flour, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, salt, and cloves together in a bowl.

  • Beat oil, applesauce, brown sugar, white sugar, and orange juice together in a separate bowl using an electric mixer until smooth. Beat eggs, 1 at a time, into applesauce mixture, beating until each egg is fully incorporated before adding next egg.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean, about 50 minutes.
