This was such a hit at a barbeque picnic I went to a couple of weeks ago. My friends could not stop reacting in ecstasy! LOL! Many said it was the best cake they've ever had. I was extremely impressed as well. I did tweak it a bit; I added a 1/2 cup of applesauce like some commenters did, and used the traditional creaming method for cakes. I also added some cardamom; I have a huge jar of it and need to use it! I also used Earth Balance spread instead of butter(me and a friend have issues with dairy).I frosted it with a maple buttercream, also using Earth Balance and real maple syrup, and sprinkled it with chopped pecans. YUM! In fact a couple of friends demanded I make it for Thanksgiving. 'Oh twist my arm".....
