This is a cake that I made to use up some leftover applesauce. It is low fat and has no oil or butter, it uses only one egg, and sugar-free sweetened condensed milk and applesauce and has the healthy addition of oats. It comes out so moist. It's great the next day for a breakfast treat.

Wow, wow, wow! This recipe is so quick and easy to make and the result is fabulous: a very moist and spicy bread like cake (or muffin in my case) with so much flavour and texture. The oats really make it special and the cinnamon is perfect. I got 12 muffins out of the full recipe (baked them for 35 minutes), which were gobbled up immediately. :) Thanks so much for sharing this lovely recipe with us, Mami Janine! I will surely make this again soon, maybe adding in fresh chopped apples or raisins. Made and reviewed for Bevy Tag June 09.

Like a previous reviewer, I used this recipe to make muffins. They turned out quite dense, moist and very flavorful. The only changes I made were to use quick oats, which I didn't bother processing since they're already pretty small, regular condensed milk, since I don't know where to get sugar-reduced, and the addition of 1 chopped Macintosh apple. I'm wondering if the addition of baking powder would give a lighter muffin. I may try that in the future. Made for Nuffin But Muffin Tag Game.
