Applesauce Carrot Cake (7" Spring Form Pan)

“Originally this cake was made in a 9" spring form pan, but now that I have a 7" spring form pan I want to make it so I thought I'd half the recipe. Its an excellent carrot cake..probably the best I've ever tasted. It goes great with either Vanilla or Lemon Cream Cheese Icing.”
