"Another no-bowl cake recipe. Found this one on a MasterCook recipe e-list back in 1998. Haven't tried it yet but hope to soon. Update: I have tried this now and used half all-purpose half whole wheat flour and no nuts. It worked very well. Not a high rising cake but it was nice and moist when we had this for breakfast the next morning. Took 25 minutes in a 9 inch pan."

"A good recipe that will prove to be flexible I believe. The second time I made it I used currants, which were not quite as sweet and helped the cake pair perfectly with a cup of coffee. I may try making this into a chocolate cake too, adding a couple T. of cocoa instead of cinnamon and raisins. It seemed to take a little longer to cook than projected, but it stayed very moist in spite of my fear of it overcooking in some areas (you wouldn't want to under-cook this one or it would be too dense and gooey)."
"Quick and easy. Easier to mix in a real bowl though. I added an egg. I also used currants, but raisins or dried cranberries would be good. Love the spice in it."
"This is a great recipe to have in your bag of tricks. A quick, easy and tasty dish that uses ingredients that you'd have around the house anyway. Perfect for when friends drop in for a visit, your suddenly obliged to make something, or you got the munchies."
"A very good fuss free cake. I have made this twice now. I had a little trouble the first time mixing the dry ingredients well enough - so this time I put them all in a plastic freezer bag & gave it a shake. I used a large jar of applesauce and a little water to shake out the remainder of the bottle. The cake was moist and enjoyed by the whole family. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe."
"Good basic cake recipe. I left out the raisins and used baby applesauce. I needed a little more applesauce than called for to make a mixable batter but otherwise the mixing was fine. I actually found it a tad dry. But nothing a little glaze can't fix. A good solid recipe."
"This was flavoursome, moist and light! I made 14 tiny cupcakes out of the batter, mixing the batter in a bowl, and added a teaspoon of cranberry jelly filling. Thankyou for a great recipe when I've run out of eggs!"
"So easy! So tasty! I love making this in the baking dish as there is so little to clean up! I made 2 of these for Rosh Hashanah lunch and there was very little left. Everyone loved them. In one of the cakes I added 1/3 - 1/2 C coarse chopped apple."
