    So simple to make and absolutely delicious. I will be making this often. Lovely and moist so actually no need for any icing... Try it, you will love it.  -  08 Jul 2011

    Excellent moist cake - I used 1 cup apple sauce in place of vegetable oil to make it a "non-fat" cake. Came out great!!  -  12 Jun 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
