I followed other reviewers' suggestions and cut the sugar, but I went down to 1/4 cup, and then used 1/4 cup of applesauce & agave nectar mixed. I also subbed two egg whites for the egg, a soy and whole wheat flour blend for the flour, and used canola oil instead of butter. And you know what? This was still phenomenal - only without the saturated fat and blood sugar spike! Thank you for posting!
Great recipe, although I used 1/2 c white sugar and 1/4 c brown sugar.
Made this for dinner with the in-laws. Everybody loved it. Hubby says make this again. I did add rasins. Otherwise followed the recipe. The ingredients are what you would have on hand nothing expensive or exotic but turns out YUMMMM! Thanks for posting this. It was great served warm from the oven with whipped cream & ice cream.
