This is an excellent cake recipe that makes moist, delicious muffins. I substituted 1 cup of Splenda Granular for 1 cup of the sugar, and I replaced 1 cup of the oil with 1 cup of unsweetened applesauce. I got 18 large muffins out of this recipe, and the crumb is so moist, you won't miss the frosting!

I made this for my daughter's birthday. It was moist and really good. I used an Italian Cream Cheese Frosting recipe that I have been using for a long time. I will make it again.

This cake is moist and delicious. One little change: I used 1 cup of oil and 1/2 cup orange juice instead of the 1 1/2 cup oil. Also used chocolate fudge icing. But it's good enough to serve w/o frosting. Everyone loved the cake and wanted recipe. Thanks!
