Wow! I just took this out of the oven, it's not even cooled yet. I just had to taste it, and I did. This is so moist, so flavorful, I'm just blown away! I keep trying Kitten's low-fat or fat free recipes,as I am on a low fat assignment Lol! I keep waiting to find a low/free (fat)recipe that I don't like! I am not a clove person, and nutmeg is right up there too, so I just put extra cinnamon in it. I had whole allspice so I ground it up. I can't even find 1 thing wrong with this recipe! Thanks so much for sharing, Kitten! This is definately a keeper!

Kitten, I don't like having to change your recipes too much, but I really thought I had pineapple and discovered I was out after mixing this cake up. I used 1 cup of applesauce instead (though not the same) and used 1/2 splenda and brown sugar. I added some raisins to this. This cake turned out moist and still low fat. Everyone seems to be on a diet and I am trying low fat recipes. Even though I had to make a few changes this still was absolutely delicious. Thank you!
