In large bowl combine the cake mix, applesauce and eggs; stir until mixed. Add in the cherry mixture, nuts and dry mulled cider mix. Prepare bundt pan with melted butter and flour - see tip below.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent version of Nana's Apple Cake! We loved this cake! I used golden raisins as we prefer those and subbed Pecans for the Walnuts due to an allergy... I also sprinkled about 1/3 of the Mulled Cider Mix into the juice before reducing with the fruit. Definitely making this again & next time I may add some well-drianed crushed pineapple too! Don't let the old-fashioned look of this cake fool you, it's wonderful!
