Great recipe which lends itself to tweaking it for your own taste, which is why i'm giving it 5 stars. I, too, opted to use 3/4 c. oil and 1/2 c. unsweetened applesauce (because i just can't bring myself to use more oil in ANY cake), and also did 1/2 white sugar and 1/2 brown sugar. I pumped up the spices as well, adding 1/2 t. more cinnamon, 1 t. nutmeg, 1/2 t. cloves, 1/4 t. ginger, and 1/4 t. allspice. I baked it in a bundt pan for 50 minutes, and iced it with a Caramel Frosting (1/2 recipe) found on Paula Deen's website and sprinkled on 1/2 c. toasted walnuts (omitted nuts in cake itself). It was a HUGE hit! A very moist, flavorful cake that just looked and tasted like the perfect "fall" dessert. I will definitely make this cake again!
