Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Beat eggs, oil, and vanilla together. In separate bowl combine flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, cloves, and cinnamon. Stir into egg mixture and beat well. Add pecans and apples or applesauce. Pour into a greased and floured 9x13-inch baking pan and bake for 45 minutes. Prepare glaze by mixing all ingredients together and bringing to a boil for 2 minutes. Pour over cake immediately after it is removed from oven. Serve warm.
