Wow, what a yummy, yummy cake. I did substitue 1/2 C applesauce for 1/2 C oil. But then, I added back the calories saved (and then some, I'm afraid) by icing with cream cheese frosting--oh, my, this was to die for! I added more nuts than suggested, too, and used pecans, about 1/2 to 3/4 cup of nuts. I imagine raisins would be good. The icing was great, but not necessary. I think another reviewer said they made this with just applesauce, and no pumpkin, and I bet that would be just as good. A very moist, spicy, dense cake, ideal for a cold winter morning! I have frozen one to take out for my family on Thanksgiving morning. Very easy to make, and I highly reccommend you try it.
