Today was my mom's birthday, so I decided to surprise with a cake. I didn't have much time after school so I wanted a quick recipe. This one was perfect-really easy to make ^^. I used 1/4 cup applesauce instead of the egg and also added one of those snack size puddings. The cake was scrumdiddlyumptious and so moist! My mom was so surprised! Thanks

Very good recipe! Family loves this on a cold wintry morning. Not overly sweet. Great with a cup of coffee.

This was a good cake that was quick to make and quick to eat. It was gone very quickly between my brood and DH. I wasn't very fond of it, but had a cold at the time, so that doesn't count. I love that I only had a couple dishes to wash afterwards. I think it would be good with a little orange or almond extract added to it. Made and reviewed for US Regional Alphabet Tag - Thanks! :)
