  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly spray a 10-inch Bundt pan with cooking spray and lightly dust it with flour.
  2. Using an electric mixer on medium speed, in a medium bowl, beat the applesauce, margarine, and stevia sweetener until well blended. Add the eggs, beating after each one.
  3. In a large bowl, sift the flour, cinnamon, salt, baking soda, and nutmeg. Add the flour mixture to the applesauce mixture, beating on medium speed just until no flour is visible. Stir in the vanilla. Gently fold in the apples, walnuts, and cranberries. Pour the batter into the pan.
  4. Bake for 1 hour, or until a wooden toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Transfer to a cooling rack. Let the cake cool completely. To help remove the cake from the pan, slide a butter knife along the outer edges of the pan and along the inner tube to release the cake.
  5. Invert the cake. Transfer to a serving plate. Sprinkle with the coconut flakes.
