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
