I made this cake last week, and my children loved it, and know they like me to bake it again, this is the best recipe ever, thank you
Beautiful recipe!<br/>Made this for my Mother's 52nd surprise birthday party, and it was a hit! We felt so good about eating something clean, wholesome, and delicious. <br/>Perfect amount of sweetness, not at all dry, and not at all mushy, like some fruit/veggie cakes can become.<br/>I used 1/2 homemade applesauce and 1/2 light olive oil. I also upped the cinnamon and added nutmeg and clove to give it an extra kick. I filled the middle with a cream cheese, greek yogurt, and honey filling, and I iced the top with fresh cream, sweetened with a bit of pure maple syrup. Chopped walnuts on top hit the spot! I will definitely be making this again, maybe as muffins. Thank you!
Delicious! I didn't have pineapple so I used baby food (mango apple). I cut the honey down a bit and turned half into mini muffins (cooked 15 min) and the other half into cake topped with coconut cream cheese frosting.
Absolutely fantastic recipe. We've been avoiding eating white flour. It is so nice to find a recipe with whole wheat that tastes so good, not heavy. An amazing cake. Thanks for sharing this recipe. Delicious, doesn't even need the frosting.
Made this cake for Thanksgiving in two 9-inch cake pans. What a great recipe! I did what some of the other reviews advised - halved the oil and made up the difference with unsweetened applesauce. It came out beautifully and paired perfectly with light cream cheese frosting: 1 stick 1/3 fat cream cheese, 1 cup powdered sugar and a splash of vanilla extract. The cake was moist enough that just one batch of frosting covered the entire cake plus a later inside. I even had enough left to pipe a little carrot design (sort of)! I posted a picture in case anyone would like to see another example of the recipe. I will definitely be making it again!!
This is a great recipe..but I like others left out oil and put in 3/4 cup applesauce,also added 1 tsp of ginger and nutmeg.I also made 1 loaf pan cake and the rest into muffins.But this is such an awesome recipe with no sugar,no oil.I also used unsweet applesauce.
Anyone know if I can omit the walnuts or replace them with a non-tree nut? My husband has severe tree nut allergies and this recipe sounds amazing. I have carrots from my garden that I'd like to use...
Let's put it this way...I'm making this again right now! Sooo yummy!
I made this as a healthy birthday cake alternative for a friend at work and got rave reviews. Very moist and flavorful. I used regular whole wheat flour vs. white whole wheat flour and it still looked great.
Amazing! Moist and delicious! Added some vanilla like others suggested. Thank you for posting!
