Applesauce Cake II Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2009
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!

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.

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.

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.

very heavy cake, expected a lighter cake. i substituted 1 1/2 baking soda for the 1/2 baking powder and loved it.

Not what I expected. Very dense, heavy cake with an icing that does not match.
