    I've made this several time's. It is spongy and the taste is very similar to cocoa pebbles or flakes (the cereal). If it comes out hard as a rock you are cooking to long. If it comes out custardy you havn't cooked it enough, definatly put it in longer considering the raw egg component. - 1/5/10

    I'm really interested in making this, but is there a substitute for the applesauce? I'm allergic to apples. - 10/25/08

    I substituted the applesauce for oil, so you can use any type of oil instead of the applesauce. I've made it both ways and there was no real difference. The oil will had a little more calories, but I'm sure you could use a little less oil.
