raisins, coarsely chopped
1 1/2 cups
I have nothing but positive things to say about this recipe!! It's great!! I omitted the raisins (unfortunately, my family does not care for them like I do) and spread cream cheese frosting overall. OHHHH sooo good!! Thanks Corwynn for sharing this one...its a keeper!
It was easy to make. Obtained a messy, sticky goo upon chopping the raisins with my food processer. Should be left as they are.
Wow! I just baked this cake an hour ago, and had to write a review. I was nervous about baking a cake with no eggs, or milk so I was expecting the worst. It came out GREAT. I changed a lot of the recipe - I added about 3/4 cup of cocoa powder w/the dry ingredients, omitted the raisins/cloves, used about a half cup extra of applesauce, and about a tablespoon of vegetable oil, and baked it in a small round springform pan. I topped it with a simple glaze (ref: vanilla glaze recipe on this site), and then sprinkled a bit of powdered sugar. It came out fantastic this is a great recipe to get creative with - Thanks for posting!
I gave this cake 5 stars even though mine didn't turn out the way I expected, which was my own fault--I used Spenda instead of white sugar and the cake did not rise well. The flavor is still excellent, but I have a very dense cake. It is recommended that for cakes to use an 8" pan instead of 9" and add 1/2 c. non-fat dry milk and 1/2 tsp. soda for every cup of Spenda. Wish I would have checked into this before! Also, I left out the raisins, would be better with walnuts I think.
Absolutely AMAZING! I used about 2/3 cup applesauce sweetened with brown sugar, added a pinch of nutmeg, and only used about a half teaspoon of salt. I substituted the butter with 1/2 cup margarine and 1 tbsp fat free milk. I also used an 8x8 inch pan, and it turned out simply fantastic. It is in all honesty the best spice cake I have ever had. That applesauce adds an awesome flavor and texture
Very easy, very moist, and very tasty recipe. I omitted raisins only because I didn't have any in the pantry; and added 1 tsp. vanilla. The cake baked perfectly in exactly 50 minutes using a 9 inch square pan. I sprinkled a little powdered sugar on top before serving. My husband devoured it.
Super easy and super delicious AND healthy too! Cloves were a bit strong. Will reduce next time. Only alteration was I put in 1/2 cup of finely chopped walnuts! Yum I am saving this one!
Awesome. I didn't have ground cloves on hand, so I used allspice. I also substituted dark brown sugar for the white. Definitely a keeper. Thanks, Corwynn.
