  • @Yazerella. Applesauce replaces oil that is found in the majority of carrot cake recipes; hence, the low calories. Also, as Briebrite pointed out...missing ingredients. Most carrot cake recipes include pineapple, coconut, and some type of nut (I prefer pecans over walnuts). - 6/23/12

  • I think using applesauce is in place of any type of oil - 3/21/11

  • I wouldn't suggest using this recipe. 2 tsp of baking soda didn't seem right to me, so I consulted a carrot cake recipe in another cookbook. That book says 2 tsp of baking powder and one HALF teaspoon of baking soda. Also, there are ingredients in the instructions not listed above. Sloppy. - 4/13/10

  • I'm confused, what relevance does the applesauce have?!
