Fast and easy and yummy and moist too! What a smart recipe. We skipped the frosting and dusted with powdered sugar. I actually made two 8 by 8 cakes instead of the 9 by 13. One for us and one for my parents. I halved the recipe for each pan. Adjusted to 1/2 tsp. salt, 1/4 cup applesauce and 1/4 cup oil in each pan. Turned out great!

Tasty and easy, I wanted dessert but I was out of eggs. This is just tasty as any cake with eggs and I love the idea there is only the cake pan to clean up afterwards. I didn't use icing because it was good enough without it. Thanks for sharing!

This is a family favourite. I make this at least twice a month actually more like once a week! I replace half the oil with applesauce and use high fibre flour. We sprinkle chocolate chips on top before baking and don't ice it. My two boys love to help make it.

This was mixed in less than 5 minutes and resulted in a cake everyone in the house loved. I added 1 c semisweet chocolate chips on top before baking. Thanks for sharing a recipe that I will make again and again.

Good tasting, very moist, very quick and easy to put together! A keeper. I used coconut milk (instead of water) and red wine vinegar (that's what I had). Put whipped cream and sprinkles on top.

I made this with the grandkids. It was great! I didn't even bother to frost/ice it. We served it with either vanilla ice cream or whipped cream or both. My 5 year old grand daughter had a piece the next day with chocolate syrup. Quick and easy.

This was awesome, easy to make and super yummy. Loved it that the top didnt get sticky like boxed cake mix and I knew exactly what was in the cake! I will never buy boxed cake mix again. The best part is u always have these simple ingredients on hand.

I tried it and this was delicious! Very rich, moist and fudgey! Using my coffee grinder, I ground sugar in the raw and cocoa together and sifted it on top of the cake. DELISH! Will definitely be making this often. Thanks for sharing!
