    i've been making the original from the KRAFT website for a few yrs and its always a hit. have made some of the adaptations too - it really is still moist w/o any oil! seen a cute version w/ orange colored frosting covering the cake and a green-tinted ice-cream cone upside down on top as the stem! - 10/6/10

    This sounds great! I'm going to use applesauce also and maybe try dark chocolate in place of the semi-sweet. Thanks for the recipe! - 12/2/09

    This is so good. I love the flavor of this cake. But I made it with natural applesauce instead of the oil.
    Even my kids love it. There is only one problem. I can't stop at just one serving.... Too incredible tasty.

    I know, right?! I am making it this weekend for a gathering! I can't just make it to have at home unless I KNOW there will be no left overs! I just made homemade applesauce too - so I will use that instead of the oil this time as well!
