1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 cup Butter -- at room temperature
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup sour cream

2 Golden Delicious Apples -- peeled and cut into 1/4" square pieces (about 1 lb)

Heat oven to 350°. Coat 10-inch Bundt pan with nonstick cooking spray.
Cake: Sift flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves into medium-size bowl.
Beat together butter and sugar in second medium-size bowl on medium-high speed until smooth and creamy, about 2 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in sour cream and applesauce; mixture may look curdled. On low speed, slowly add flour mixture, beating until well blended. Gently fold in apple pieces. Scrape batter into prepared pan, smoothing top.
Bake in 350° oven for about 50 minutes or until cake tester inserted in center of cake comes out clean.
Syrup: Meanwhile, heat together sugar, apple juice and brandy in small saucepan over medium-low heat until sugar dissolves; do not boil. Remove from heat.
Remove cake from oven. Leave cake in pan; place pan on wire rack. Brush top of cake with half the brandy syrup. Let stand 10 minutes. Invert onto wire rack and remove pan; place rack over jelly-roll pan. Brush cake with remaining syrup; let cool completely.
Glaze: Mix sugar, juice and nutmeg in small bowl until smooth. Drizzle over cake. Let harden slightly.
