A very nice snack cake. I took your suggestion and used 1/4 cup oil and 2 1/4 cups of applesauce. I'm sure it made it just a little 'gummier' but it was worth the reduction in calories for me. The cake has a lovely light chocolate, apples & cinnamon flavor. So people felt it should be more chocolaty, but I think that's because they were expecting chocolate cake because of the color. Once I explained it was an applesauce cake, opinions of it went up. I dusted the top with just a little bit of confectioner's sugar to give it a more 'finished' look. A perfect fall dessert! Thanks for sharing!
Great Recipe! Everyone love this! I have also made this cake with Splenda Too! Thanks!
