To be honest, I didn't make this as written. I wanted to cut back on the oil, and had planned on using applesauce, but I didn't have any on hand. I had heard that you could replace flax seed meal for part of the oil, so I tried that. I used 3/4 cup oil and 3/4 cup flax seed meal for my oil. I also used 1 cup brown sugar and 2/3 cup white. For the spices, I added 1/4 tsp each ground Ginger, Cloves and Nutmeg in addition to the cinnamon. I also added 1 tsp of vanilla. I baked it in a jelly roll pan. For the cream cheese icing I used 8 oz. cream cheese and approximately 4 cups powdered sugar. I'm very pleased with the results. I may add more of the 3 extra spices, and I'm wondering what some mashed banana would taste like in it. Maybe a little bit of orange zest as well. Hmmmm...
