This is a pretty good cake, made with carob powder. Tastes kinda caroby, but still alright.

I just made these as mini bundt cakes, and they are absolutely scrumptious! The only trouble I had was that they stuck just a little to the pan, but that was my own fault for not greasing it well enough. The only change I made was to use applesauce since the only egg "substitute" available where I live is actually egg whites (ick).

I am definitely going to make these again for my mother's birthday next month, but I think I'll add the red colouring for that (she thinks it's prettier).
