½ cup (1 stick) margarine, room temperature
1 cup sugar
3 eggs
½ teaspoon vanilla
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon allspice
½ teaspoon nutmeg
½ teaspoon cloves
¼ cup nondairy creamer mixed with ¼ teaspoon vinegar

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease an 8-inch square baking pan. In a stand mixer, cream margarine and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition. Add the vanilla and applesauce and beat until smooth.

Stir together flour, baking soda and spices and pour ½ this mixture into batter. Add the nondairy creamer and then remaining dry ingredients. Stir until completely incorporated but do not over mix. Pour into prepared pan and bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Let cool for 15 minutes in pan before removing to wire rack to finish cooling. Dust with powdered sugar before serving, if desired.
