"Spicy frosted applesauce cake."
Watch video tips and tricks
2 1/2 cups
1 1/2 teaspoons
1 1/2 cups
packed brown sugar
finely chopped walnuts
In this recipe there is supposed to be
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda in addition to the 1/4 tsp. baking powder. I've used this recipe (with the baking soda) in the past and it is one of the best applesauce cakes I've had.
very heavy cake, expected a lighter cake. i substituted 1 1/2 baking soda for the 1/2 baking powder and loved it.
cake turned out to be 1 inch in height and VERY heavy. Thought I'd made a mistake so I made it again....results were the same.
Not what I expected. Very dense, heavy cake with an icing that does not match.
Clearly salt and leavening amounts are incorrect. Switched them. Makes a nice snacking cake or breakfast cake without the frosting, which I agree doesn't match the cake.
A friend of mine made this cake, and I agree with Karen, the previous reviewer. There is supposed to be 1 1/2 tsp. baking soda as well. The salt and baking powder amounts are correct. My friend left out the raisins and nuts and added 2 apples, peeled, cored, and chopped. She also left off the glaze. (Her recipe for glaze was different.) It was a wonderful moist cake!
