Very good cake! I agree that it gets better the day after its baked. I did used a 1/4 less sugar and would do that again. I think I'll add nuts and raisins next time. I topped the cake with an applesauce cream cheese frosting. Thanks for posting the recipe.
It definitely came out moist and rich! The flavors of the spices and molasses reminded me of a carrot cake. Next time, I may try cutting back on the sugar, just a little bit.
Moist, rich, delicious - not overly sweet. I too used fresh grated nutmeg. You can throw this one together in just a few quick minutes. Highly recommended!
Excellent! Loved this recipe. I made the following changes...decreased oil to 1/3 cup, decreased sugar by half, used pear sauce because that's what I had and I baked these as muffins/cupcakes. They were great! I baked for 15 min at 375 (convection oven) and it made 24 medium muffins. Thanks for posting, will be making this again.
Loved it! I used 1 cup all-purpose flour and 1 cup white whole wheat flour (both made by King Arthur Flour Co.). Delish!
Okay, nothing special. I used all applesauce. It is kinda chewy. It was simple to put together and quick to bake, but the flavor was ho-hum. I would not make again. **I want to update this to say how much BETTER the cake is a day or two later. It is much moister and tastier. I will make it again with walnuts and raisins, at the request of my husband. Thanks!!
This was an easy quick cake. It was delicious with a dollop of homemade whipped cream. Just sweet enough to take care of the sweet tooth. I also replaced some of the oil with more applesauce.
My two young daughters (5 and 7) made this cake by themselves. It is easy enough for a kid! It came out okay, sorta bland. Not bad, just not outstanding.
I made this cake with my residents at a nursing home we try a new recipe each week. We made it in a jelly roll pan and only baked for 20 minutes. We do not like to wait for a treat from the oven. The residents wanted to give the recipe 6 stars. Easy to make. Great taste
This was a very tasty recipe. I used just 1/4 cup of oil and increased the applesauce to 1 1/4 cups.
