This is easy to make but the directions must be followed exactly. An electric mixer is necessary. Very good for a diabetic recipe - moist and soft. Would make it again.

this was pretty good diet cake. It tastes more like gingerbread than applesauce. All of the diet cakes have that sort of slight spongy gummy texture. It was good to be so healthy. I substituted smuckers oil/shortening mixture for the margarine.

VERY GOOD! Big hit at a party at our senior center. At most parties you eat whatever cake they have or you don't eat it because of the sugar. This was a great alternative and didn't taste like "fake cake". I had many requests to make it again. (I doubled the recipe and added a couple of tablespoons each of nuts and raisins.)

Very moist and tasty. I added walnuts and served with a dollop of non-fat, no sugar added vanilla yogurt. Nice Fall dessert.

I made this cake twice and it was quite good. I added walnuts to the batter. The cake has a spicy flavor.

This is quite moist and yummy. It does not taste like sugar free dessert. I have already made it twice, once as cupcakes, and have recieved many compliments. I added a little extra cinnamon. The recipe does need to be followed carefully, but it is not difficult even with a hand mixer. I will make this recipe again and again.

This was a wonderful cake for my mother-in-law's birthday. Everyone loved it. I doubled the recipe with the following modifications: 3 teaspoons cinnamon (instead of 4); 1 1/2 cups splenda and 1/2 cup sugar (instead of 2 cups splenda). For the reduced fat margarine, I used smart balance 50/50 butter blend. Also, I only baked for 30 minutes even though I had doubled the recipe to make a 9x13 cake. It turned out so delicious and moist!! I served with sugar free cool whip. Will definitely make again!

Until very recently, I had cooked the oldfashioned way...diabetes changed that. This is the first cake I have tried, and we loved it. Moist, sweet, spicy, light,'s a keeper.
