I was only going to give this 4 stars, because it's not mind-blowingly, eat until you feel like bursting good. However, compared to what I was expecting from a vegan cake with absolutely no sugar added to it, this was exceptionally good. I will make this cake again and probably many agains. I made a couple of changes to the recipe, 1 tablespoon of applesauce for 1/2 the oil, I used half raisins and half dried cherries, and I baked it in a round cake pan, instead of a loaf pan. I can't wait to make it again, I'm going to add some different dried fruits in addition to the raisins and dried cherries (I'm thinking apricots and maybe dried apples) and I'm going to add some spices (cinnamon, maybe some nutmeg.) Thanks for posting this recipe. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a healthier, sugar free alternative to Splenda sweetened baked goods.
