Preheat oven to 325°F. In large bowl, combine Absolutely Almond Pound Cake Mix, water and applesauce; blend well. Do not over mix; batter will be lumpy.
In small bowl, combine brown sugar and cinnamon; set aside.
Spread half of batter in a greased 9-inch deep dish pie plate. Layer half of the cinnamon sugar mixture on top of the batter. Repeat layers. Sprinkle with almonds, if desired. Bake 50-55 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
