Wow--a really tasty cake! I made it for an event at church, but took a small piece before we left and it was yummy! I used Granny Smith unsweetened applesauce, as that is what I had on hand, and I had to bake mine about 10 minutes longer than the recipe stated, but other than that it was made exactly per the recipe. DH can't wait for me to make this again just for us, and that is saying something as he is generally a chocolate cake kind of guy! Made for ElaineAnn's win in the 2010 Football Pool Tag. Congratulations!!
