Heat oil in deep-fryer to 375 degrees. Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and salt onto piece of waxed paper. In a large bowl, use an electric mixer at medium speed to beat together sugar, brown sugar, and eggs until fluffy. Beat in 2 tablespoons oil. Stir flour mixture into egg mixture, alternately with milk, beginning and ending with dry ingredients, until well blended. Stir in applesauce and vanilla. Carefully drop batter by level tablespoons, 3 or 4 at a time, into hot oil. Do not overcrowd pan, or oil may overflow. Fry, turning once with tongs, for 3 minutes or until golden. Transfer with tongs to paper toweling to drain. Cool completely.
