Great applesauce cake! This doesn't take long to bake - it's done in 35 minutes for a 9x13 pan. For those who found it dry, maybe they overcooked it. I almost did! I upped the applesause by 1/2 cup and used 1/2 cup of white sugar and 1/2 cup of brown (decreasing the sugar by 1/2 cup). I also added 1 chopped apple and 1/2 tsp. of vanilla. It smelled great coming out of the oven. For the icing I used Pumpkin Bar Icing from this site. It's a cream cheese icing that tastes great and is very simple.

Well, this was not my favorite. This is my first less then 5 stars I've ever given. Didn't have a great deal of flaavor and was dry. I may have baked it a bit too long. My oven and I have issues. I don't think I'll make this again. I'll try another spice cake sometime. It was easy but not didn't tickle my taste buds. Family thought it was O.K.

Nice moist cake, used a 9 X 13 pan and frosted it with cream cheese icing. Very easy and everyone enjoyed it!

I was making these for my kids, so I made this into cupcakes and didn't add in the raisins and walnuts; although, I think I would have liked them more had I included these ingredients. But, my kids liked them just as I made them, and they didn't last long in the house. I topped the cupcakes with Allspice Cream Cheese Frosting, also from this site.

The cake was very moist. I made the cake without raisins or walnuts. It still turned out good.

Terrific recipe- this is a keeper. I found the cake to be easy to make, very moist and delicious. In the future I wouldn’t bother making a frosting for this as it stands well on its own. I made half the recipe resulting in 12 cupcakes. Thanks for sharing!

Our family loved this easy recipe.The cake vanished in notime. Iadded ginger cloves, and used cannola oil instead of butter.Iused 1/2 cup wholewheat flour and glazed the cake using powdered sugar vanilla ,and a little water for a lactose free desert.thanks Britney!

I was expecting it to be a little more moist, but it had great flavor. I added chopped apple and made them into cupcakes. I halved the recipe and made about 10 cupcakes. I cut the sugar back and still thought it was very sweet. If I made the full recipe I would cut out about a 1/2 cup of sugar.
