      OUTSTANDING recipe, Prose!!!! I made it as a treat for my sis for lunch today and was amazed at how quick and easy the cake (or muffins in my case) came together. In nearly no time I had these cute sweeties on the table and oh the taste! Very yummy vanilla flavour with just the right amount of sweetness. The lemon would surely have been a nice addition, but since Im allergic I left it out. The texture was very nice as well-cakey and moist. I subbed half applesauce for the oil and used vanilla oat milk to boost the vanilla flavour. This will be a staple in my house from now on. My sis has already requested it to be made soon again. :) THANKS SO MUCH FOR SHARING! Made and reviewed for Veggie Swap #12 July 09.

      Loved this cake! So quick and simple. I used 1/2 cup of sugar instead of a liquid sweetener, and I baked it in a 9x13 pan for 20 minutes. It came out moist and fluffy. I made a lemon icing to match the lemon zest in the cake. Awesome!!!

      I'm giving this 3 stars for the healthy ingredients (maple syrup, spelt flour etc), however the cake itself was not anything that could pass off with your 'average joe'. Very dry and heavy. Intended on using it as a birthday cake (not a big fan of sugary treats) but will continue to search for another recipe.
