This is a wonderful cake! I followed the suggestions made by another reviewer. I substituted an extra 1/2 cup applesauce for 1/2 cup oil. I also used a bundt pan. I had to cook for 50 minutes, and it probably could have baked a little longer, but it was fine. It didn't come out of the pan clean, that is my only complaint, otherwise it was DELICIOUS! I didn't use anything to top it, but it would be great with a cream cheese frosting. I will do that next time. My husband took some back to work with him to share with his work buddies. He absolutely raved about it! It was so easy, I will make this again and again!
This cake was delicious moist and very easy I've made it twice and everyone has loved it. I made this cake in a bundt pan. I did make a couple of substitutions... I replaced 1/2 cup of oil with an additional 1/2 cup of applesauce (I always do that to reduce fat) I also added 1/2 teaspoon of ground cloves for extra spice. I only needed to cook it for 40 minutes.
This receipe was absolutely GREAT!! My family loved it and I have noted options that can be added for special occassions or differenttastes. GREAT GREAT GREAT! Also VERY easy to make this is a plus in a busy family.
Fabulous!!! Thanks for the suggestions of substituting 1/2 cup applesauce for 1/2 oil. I ran out of plain applesauce and used apple/strawberry sauce instead; added just a bit of nutmeg - my boys (19 & 13) absolutely love it. Can't keep them away from it!!! (lol) Thanks!!! :)
I am always on the lookout for inexpensive ways to treat my kids without the junk. Fall is a perfect time to crank up the heat and use up those apples. I had some old (we only eat crunchy) apples laying around and I peeled them cored them and threw them in the crock pot with some spices and OJ for a couple of hours mashed with potato masher and had applesauce galore. This recipe was exactly what I was looking for. I always try to cut down on the sugar and the oil. I used half the sugar (raw) and half the oil (coconut) as well as replaced one cup of white flour with whole wheat I found in the freezer. It turned out sweet enough. I made a double batch and 5 kids devoured it. The texture was airy and cake like moist and absolutely a keeper on anyone's healthy dessert or breakfast menu. Easy to assemble the day before (at least dry ingr) and very forgiving. Enjoy it!
I read the reviews and all the suggestions and I did the 2.5 cups of applesauce, 1 cup of oil, 3t cinnamon, 2t nutmeg and 1.5t cloves. The spices made it more of an applesauce spice cake which is what we prefer. Very moist and in no need of frosting unless you have a super sweet tooth.
Cake for BREAKFAST! My 4 year old LOVES THAT! (Me too!) I added the extra 1/2 cup applesauce and only used 3/4 cup oil-I found it too moist using 1 cup. I also added 1/4 t. each ground nutmeg and ginger. I have also used 3 t. Chinese 5-spice (w/OUT pepper! read the labels) and it was great!
