Very easy to make, and just the right size for the three of us. This cake reminds me of spice cake, it has a very nice allspice flavor. I served it with vanilla ice cream - YUM!
I've made this applesauce cake a few times now and thought I had already reviewed it... but nope... so here goes! Absolutely love how easy and quick this is to throw together... I love making it on a Saturday morning for everyone to come down to in the morning. It smells heavenly while baking and is the perfect weekend alarm clock. That being said, I use double the amount of applesauce called for (I love a really moist applesauce cake) and add some chopped up apple (about 1 medium) and a sprinkle of cinnamon (just because I love it!) and this cake is absolutely perfect! Thanks for a great easy recipe, chia!
Soooooo easy. That's my favorite part. Yummy, moist cake with great flavor. On the advice of a previous poster, I reduced the sugar to 2/3 cup. Perfect for us. I didn't have allspice, so I used 1 teaspoon cinnamom and 1/2 teaspoon cloves.
