The flavor and texture of this cake is awesome. It is a very spicy and moist cake. However, it is not suitable for most diabetics. The molasses is a natural sugar and takes the carb level too high for most diabetics to safely tolerate. I served this with a dollup of whipped cream and a sprinkling of cinnamon. I would think that chopped nuts and/or raisins would be a good addition to this cake.

I will definetly make this recipe again, but will cut the molasses to 1/4 cup and up the applesauce to 3/4-1 cup. Plus will bake in larger pan and bake it until it is somewhat crispy on the bottom and sides. I served this with a whiped topping made with non-fat dry milk and sugar twin.
