      Wonderful recipe. I left out the butter from the cake altogether and doubled the amount of applesauce. The texture was spongy and delicious. It was a wonderful treat. Thanks for the recipe.

      Very tasty. My hubby is already on his third piece as I write this review! I used half cake flour, half all purpose flour in hopes it would have a lighter cake texture. It turned out a little dense, but more cake like than a banana bread, exactly what I wanted.

      To further "healthify" this recipe I made the following changes;
      1) Substituted the margarine in both bar and frosting with Brummel & Brown spread.
      2) Cut the frosting ingredients in half, thinned it out with a touch of water, more like a glaze. It covered the bar (cake) well and is plenty sweet for us.
      3) Omitted the walnuts, this time ;)

      For Weight Watchers Plus program I calculated 4 points per bar, with my adjustments. Yum!
