this was delicious. i actually made it into muffins. and with no eggs its easy to make vegan! i did use whole wheat flour and cut down a little on the oil and they turned out fantastic! thanks for a fun yummy holiday recipe (ps. it made 10 muffins

I sprinkled on a few chopped pecans and omitted the crystallized ginger, but other than that used the ingredients as listed. I couldn't find my round cake pan, so this was mixed in a bowl and baked in an 8x8 square pyrex dish. Glass dish and convection baking (corrected temp to 300F and baked for 25 minutes). This is a tasty way to use some apple cider! My cake was 3 cm high, and I cut into 2 inch squares, perfect size for a snack with coffee. Thank you for posting this simple and tasty cake, LmillerRN!
