      This was superb! I used a jar of applesauce for this, the batter is thick as mentioned but the cake is sooooo moist! The blend of spices produced such a delicious flavour, it disappeared in no time!! I'm off to make another one! Thanks.

      This is THE moistest cake i've ever eaten! The smell is heavenly! I only used 1/4 tsp clove, but added 1/4 tsp ginger. I also had an apple i had to use up so I peeled and cut it into chunks and folded them in at the end (omitted the raisins) Yum, yum, yum!!!! **100 stars**
