GREAT recipe. I am a 15-year-old and at a beginner/intermediate level in baking, but this recipe was incredibly easy. I did modify the recipe a bit, though. First of all, I had no pecans, but I did add walnuts (about 3/4 cup) and chopped apples (same amount). Second, I used 1 cup whole wheat flower and one cup all-purpose, and instead of using 2 eggs I used 3 egg whites. I only used about 1/8 cup of vegetable oil and substituted the rest with applesauce. I ended up using 1/2 cup BROWN sugar, and I used fat-free soymilk instead of regular. Lastly, I added a pinch of extra salt.I baked the cake at 350 for about 33 minutes. The cake came out looking very nice, having a nice texture and tasting great (you could definitely taste the spices, and I'm very glad I added chopped apples and nuts)
