  • Made as directed and it was delicious! 6 servings were huge so I cut the cake into 12. I think next time I will play around with different fruits and substitutions to make it lower in calories :). - 6/24/14

  • This was delicious! I added 3/4 tsp of vanilla, 1/2 t cinnamon, and a pinch of cloves and nutmeg. I used rice milk and Earth Balance Butter to make it dairy free. My husband and son ate it right up! - 1/29/11
