This cake was very good, but too dense. I don't know if I did something wrong, but it hardly rose, so it didn't have the light, fluffiness that I was looking for. Or maybe that is just a result of baking with applesauce, I don't know. It worked better cut up into brownies. Either way, it has a good flavor. (By the way, I froze some if it and it froze well)
