    I wasn't sure about this recipe, but boy was I wrong - this is a super easy, a really delicious cake. Note: I used a roughly 1/2 recipe and a 21cm tin and baking powder rather than baking soda. This is going to be a regular bake from now on.  -  24 Dec 2012

    This is a great recipe. Just like a previous rating, I found this as the 'hummingbird cake'. I made a few changes that makes it healthier and just a tasty. I replaced sugar with splenda brand sweetener and replaced approx. 1/2 of the oil with applesauce. My family can't get enough, and despite my diabetes I can eat some to. I also made a glaze from the splenda and spread on top of it. I made mine in a 9 1/2" x 13 1/2" pan.  -  27 Nov 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
