In a small bowl, combine two tablespoons ground flax seed with six tablespoons water. Stir, then let stand for 5-10 minutes to thicken. This is the flax egg.
In a large bowl, combine the flour, coconut sugar, cinnamon, apple pie spice, ground cloves, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir, then set aside.
Rinse and chop two apples into small bite-sized pieces. Toss the chopped apple in three tablespoons flour until well coated.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the applesauce, maple syrup, coconut oil, and vanilla. Mix thoroughly until combined.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and gently fold together. Then, add in the chopped apple. Stir until just combined.
Thoroughly spray a bundt cake pan with non-stick cooking spray. Be sure to oil all the crevices of the pan. Then, coat the greased pan lightly with coconut sugar. This helps the cake slide out clean.
Pour the cake batter into the bundt pan. Bake in the oven for 65-75 minutes, or until a knife comes out clean. Let stand in the pan for 2-3 minutes, then carefully flip it over and gently encourage the cake out of the pan.
Dust the cake with powdered sugar if desired. Slice the cake, and serve.
The cake cuts into about 12 slices, but you can make as many slices as you like.
