    I used half the sugar, half the oil and added back 1/4 c of applesauce to replace it, and baked for 25 minutes. Fantastic! A whole cup of sugar would've induced diabetes; 1/2 a cup was just right. The modifications brought the cake down to 175 cal per eighth of the whole cake. - 6/22/08

    It was wonderful. I can never understand why A: people rate recipes they haven't made, and B: how you can make additions or substitutions then give the recipe a lower rating because it was too dense etc.... follow the recipe if you are going to leave a rating for others to view. - 7/26/13

    Actually, many vegans do eat flour and sugar. Some sugar has been filtered in a way that is not vegan, but the ingredients themselves are plant products and cahn have a healthy place in a vegan diet. All things in moderation, of course, but this cake looks entirely vegan to me. - 11/16/07

    This is the first vegan cake I've made and I can't say I'm inspired. I also had to cook it for about 25 mins. The recipe doesn't specify what type of flour to use so I assumed plain and mine turned out quite dense. Perhaps using self raising flour would give a better result. - 5/15/11

    Made as written but I wasn't sure if plain or self-raising flour is used. Went for plain. A lovely dense, moist cake and not as sweet as I thought it was going to be - very rich. Absolutely delicious! Cooking time was 35m. Will make again especially for birthdays. - 2/23/14

    JLSNOW-The paper is important to ensure that light and delicate cakes turn out of the pan easily without cracking or breaking. - 4/11/09

    I haven't tried this but definitely will. By using sugar substitute instead & unsweetened apple sauce instead of oil, the calories get cut down to only 738 for the ENTIRE CAKE! Entire cake stats: Cal 738, Carbs 162, Fat 6, Protein 28. Awesome numbers! Divide by 8 or 16 - ur choice! - 12/30/08

    Lovely and delicious and quite fluffy, but the bake time was WAY off: I baked it for over 25 minutes until the center was done. - 5/18/07

    Splenda does not contain aspartame. It is made of sucralose. Sun Crystals is an all-natural stevia product. - 1/16/10

    Stevia is a better sub for sugar, because splenda has aspartame in it, which can cause bodily problems. :)
    Good recipe. - 12/30/08

  • I have this in the oven now. It looks like it will be good. I was wondering about the time for baking, I got it on for 12 minutes, but will leave it in for longer if needed.
    Question: has anyone put this cake in the freezer for later? - 6/16/14

    Liked it with the modifications: substituting 1/4 cup applesauce for half of the sugar and oil. Also appreciated the explanation for the waxed paper. - 7/27/13

    I cut the oil in half and used 2 small ripe bananas. I had to cook it for additional 15 minutes. It was dense, but delish... - 4/7/13

    This was a nice change. Fudgier than a "real" cake. I used 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/4 cup Fluff (marshmallow) instead of the white sugar, added 1 t baking powder, and used coconut oil. The calories are about the same. - 11/22/12

  • OMG sooooo good! I added pieces of chocolate that melted and added a little something extra. But even without the extra chocolate this is good delicious! - 2/9/11

  • This was definitely yummy and sooo easy! Honestly though it would not equal 15 servings in my house, 8 at most. That being the case I think I will follow others suggestions next time and reduce the sugar and use applesauce for half the oil. (Don't want to but I will) - 1/5/10

    Sounds good, but I'm not much of a cook, so can someone answer a stupid question for me please?
    You bake the cake with wax paper in the pan? AND grease the pan first? I'm a little confused. OK. A LOT confused.
    Thanks in advance. - 4/11/09

    I've made a similar dish but just with tofu, melted chocolate chips, and honey. However, a graham cracker crust was used. I like that I have the ingredients and will give this a go using the applesauce and half sugar count. Yum! - 1/28/09

    While this looks great many of these "vegan" recipes call for flour and sugar. A vegan doesn't eat those ingredents so I wish they would give true vegan recipes to keep me from having to figure out what to subsitute with. - 7/18/07

    Not bad!
    I made this with Splenda, too. And I found I had to cook it much longer, as well, before the center was done.

    I was happy with this dessert, but not jumping for joy. My husband had to have sugar-free ice cream with his to satisfy his expectations for sweetness. - 7/14/07

    You can knock the calories down to under 100 (or have a bigger piece, lol) by substituting Splenda for the sugar. Tastes great. - 3/27/07
