Go ahead and eat cake; this one's good for you! I like it with some extra fruit on top, others insist on ice cream or whipped cream. Suit yourself.

I made this this afternoon as I honestly fell for the name of this recipe:) I used a combo if 1 3/4 cups Homemade Applesauce and 3 medium bananas(mashed) alongwith 2 cups whole wheat flour, 2 cups Quick cooking oats, 1 cup chopped walnuts and the remaining ingredients. I didn't see that these measurements were for 2 cakes and while mixing the batter, I realised that there was so much in the dish. This cake took exactly 1 hour to bake in my AMC Dutch Oven and has come out very yummy! I have a tin of mango pulp lying in my refrigerator for quite a few months but I was not able to find any recipe for it. I'm now just thinking I might make this cake to use that up. If I do, I'll come back and update this review. Till then, this one's a good cake and another thing I really liked is that its eggless. Good for my vegetarian guests. Another plus point I found is that even though this cake does not call for baking powder/soda, it rose "BEAUTIFULLY"! I'm impressed with this recipe and I'll save it right now in my cookbook for the future! Thank You for sharing this.

This makes a very nice breakfast cake. I used strawberries, canned pineapple and applesauce for the fruit. Dried cranberries and chopped pecans. I served it with a "sauce" of chopped strawberries and pinneapple tidbits. Some of us had whipped cream on top and some did not. Very, very nice.

Fabulous, being on a tight budget due to my sons meds every month, I used caned pineapple. I also used coconut flour I had on hand. The cake is a crumbly dough, just follow the cooking directions and indeed you'll have a wonderful cake, yummy. There's always a way to try and eat healthy, thank you for posting!!!:) Blessings, MS
