Ok, I haven't made a layer cake in a hundred years...but thought this would be a good day to try this recipe. Man oh man!!! What a fantastic cake! And it came out BEAUTIFUL! I was so pleased. Simple to put together, I did double the spices, I'm a spicy girl, yea right..LOL and it was perfect. Iced with cream cheese frosting. This will be a favorite around here. Thanks for sharing with us.

What a great recipe! I used the frosting as suggested by sweet chef and I couldn't wait until it was cool so I drizzled the frosting on anyway and ate it warm! Just yummy..

I needed to clean out the fridge and use up some applesauce, this was a great recipe to do that with. Next time I will increase the spices just a bit. Frosted this with a caramel topping and am giving it to a friend who is a student with four hungry teenagers. I'm sure it will be gone before tomorrow.

I made this cake yesterday, and everyone really liked it! Very moist, not too spicy, and good :). Also, witout the frosting, this cake is probabaly lower in fat since it uses alot of applesauce. The spice amounts didn't seem like enough, so I doubled all of the ground spices, and it was perfect! I used cream cheese frosting (Allspice Cream Cheese Frosting) to frost it, and together they were great. Thanks for posting this great recipe!

You can't go wrong with a recipe from Bon Appetit. The combination of spices made for a very tasty and delicious cake that was moist as well. I baked it in a sheet pan and cut it into squares and topped it with sweetened whipped cream. Yum! Thanks so much for sharing this fabulous recipe, Ellie.
