      My voracious dessert eaters kept asking when they could eat this yummy cake. I had to make them wait 30 minutes after it came out of the oven so they wouldn't burn themselves. lol The smell while it was baking was heavenly! I didn't realize this until I was making it - but there are no eggs in this! I was very surprised in a good way at how high it rose and how light and fluffy and moist. I doubled the recipe for a 9x13 pan. I also omitted the powdered sugar on top as we had this with ice cream. Since I doubled the recipe - I used 1/2 cup applesauce and 1/2 cup vegetable oil as I don't have sunflower oil or access to it anywhere. A wonderful recipe and one I will be adding to my recipe files! Made for the May 2009 Aussie/NZ recipe swap.

      Very good and easy. We used safflower oil instead of the one mentioned with good results. And this is a great cake for the freezer - maybe next time I'll try making cupcakes instead of a square cake (used an 8 x 8 inch pan). Thanks for sharing!
