I used brown sugar in the cake rahte rthan white. I am allergic to pineapple so left that out. I added 1/4 tsp ginger. Maple syrup since I was out of vanilla. I didn't have applesauce but I had apples, so I oven roasted them and blended them and used 1/3c of that and 1/4 c oil. I also threw in blueberry flavored craisins. The glaze we cut 1/4c sugar out, made our own buttermilk, and again used maple syrup instead of vanilla. After all of that, it turned out AMAZING! It was a bit too sweet for my taste, but was still delicious. Next time I will make sure I have vanilla, cut more sugar, and hopefully have some nutmeg or allspice to help balance the sweetness. I was hoping for more of spice cake taste. And my daughter says more carrot than two cups. Still, this recipe is a keeper. Super moist and flavorful.
