    Impressive! Super easy to make! I used 1c. Splenda (in place of sugar) & increased to 1c. Applesauce. Replaced flour with whole wheat flour. Only 69 calories and 13 carbs per serving! My husband really liked it, said it was more like a brownie consistancy. Will save this recipe. - 11/2/09

    I made this last night as a double layer birthday cake, it was so good! Didn't even taste like it was healthy! I used a full cup of apple sauce, changed sugar for splenda, and used 1 1/4 cup cocoa. So moist! My boyfriend LOVED it! - 6/24/08
