I made this and it was too moist. The flavor was great. Had to guess where to add the sugar because it is not stated. I might try again with one less egg or less applesauce and longer bake time. Once again, the flavor was great!

Aneisha, this is an excellent recipe. I really like the use of applesauce instead of all the vegetable oil. I made this using splenda and whole wheat flour. It still turned out perfect, very moist and tasty!


It's a keeper!
