I don't know what I did wrong, but my cake turned out awful! After reading some of the reviews, I decided to use a 13 x 9 pan & I followed the instructions someone had written to do so. I also substituted applesauce for half the oil. The texture of the cake reminded me of shoo fly pie. It was not cake-like at all. If anyone might know what I did wrong, I would appreciate knowing.
