This turned out really well. I followed the suggestions of another reviewer and used 1 cup of unsweetened apple sauce and 1/3 cup of oil instead of the full amount of oil, and the cake turned out moist and delicious. I halved the sugar -- I think two cups would have been too much! Indeed, the cake was still sweet, and I feel that I could have reduced the sugar even more, especially since we used cream cheese frosting. This makes quite a lot of cake; in the future I may make halve the recipe and bake it in a loaf pan for our small family. We served seven people and still ended up with leftovers for ten more!

Wow... i've been using this recipe for about a year now and it is awesome, the only changes I make are using 1 cup applesauce and 1/3 cup oil, and i use 2 tablespoons of cinnamon instead of teaspoons :P... just fantastic :D

I made this cake for a big family party and can honestly say I've never received so many compliments for any cake I've made before, and I've made quite a few! I stuck faithfully to the given recipe, but I would caution that it took about 20 minutes longer to cook, so look carefully at it before taking it out of the oven - it will be very sticky in the middle, but shouldn't wobble!
