For Drizzle:


  1. Heat oven to 350°F.
  2. Cream butter and brown sugar in a large bowl until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in vanilla. Sift 2 1/4 cups flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves in another large bowl; add to butter mixture alternately with the sour cream, beating well after each addition. Fold in apples.
  3. Spoon half of the batter into a greased and floured 10-in. fluted tube pan. Set aside 2 tablespoons mascarpone. Combine the remaining mascarpone, confectioners' sugar and remaining flour in a small bowl; spoon evenly over batter. Top with remaining batter. Swirl batter with a knife.
