Wow, this one surprised me. I was expecting a nice moist cake that many would enjoy. But I didn't think I'd receive so many rave reviews for what I figured was a simple cake. I frosted with cream cheese II frosting so it was very similar to a carrot cake IMO. I opted for no nuts because I wasn't sure of possible allergies but some chopped walnuts would have been great on top or on the sides. I used 1 1/4 cups white sugar and 3/4 cups brown sugar. And also took the advice of using only 3/4 cup oil and 1/2 apple sauce instead. I baked two 9" rounds at 375 for 15 minutes and then dropped to 350 and continued for another 12-15 minutes. They came out a lil too brown on top because my kitchen timer failed me but were still very moist. First time using "bake even cake strips" and I'd highly recommend to any cake baker. They help distribute heat throughout the pan so no hard crusty edges or domed centers. Made it much easier to decorate since no leveling was needed. A great Thanksgiving dessert cake!
